Which would say something interesting like "If the bitcoin network
implements inconsistent behavior in the consensus critical parts of
the protocol the world ends. As such, conformance or _non_-conformance
with this specification (in particular, sections 4. 5. and 6.) may be
required for security."

A Bitcoin protocol RFC would be a great place to exercise RFC 6919
keywords.  ( http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6919 )
