Failed or Abandoned Bind operations
The current text in section 4.2.1 of the protocols document says:
"Authentication from earlier binds are subsequently ignored, and so if the bind fails, the connection will be treated as anonymous."
This does not address the issue of an abandoned bind operation. I suggest something like:
"Authentication from earlier binds are subsequently ignored. A failed or abandoned Bind Operation has the effect of leaving the connection in an anonymous state. Clients MUST rebind after abandoning a bind operation in order to determine a known authentication state."
Does this adequately cover the issue? Does it inadvertently introduce anything bad?
