It is. Section 2: "This section defines the RECOMMENDED algorithm..."

Section 3 mandates that implementations recognize names in
the table. Is there a need to mandate their use?
Considering that some implementations took the table as being
"an example" and as DC is not in , there actually be implementations
(or the equivalent using the #ber-hex notation). Are these
implementations to be outlawed?

I think we need to continue to allow use of numericoid instead
