Re: Volunteers to improve platform definitions/terms

Recommended is an indicator for the platform software and hardware vendors that the particular feature is recommended in this version of the spec while the next version of the spec might make this particular feature MANDATORY.
So Recommended provides the needed guidance to implementors to bring in support for that feature in the current version of their product or in the next version of their product.
We have tried not to use “Optional” anywhere in the spec, since that would not provide any guidance for future products.
Hope that’s clear.

IS the word "Recommended" a slightly stronger form of "Optional" (which I don't see at all)?
