                                                 In FC-PH, reserved was defined in the glossary, and it was suggested                                               for zero values."
                                                 non-normatively to ignore it on receipt. Other standards used it without
                                                 definition (e.g., FC-GS-2).                                                                                        Those who find reason to object should open their issue by the end of the December 2009 meeting.

                                                 Sometime before the current millenium, keywords began to appear in                                                 There was no objection to this resolution.
                                                 the editorial conventions. In these, checking the value in a reserved
                                                 field was changed to a prohibition (e.g., FC-GS-3, FC-SW-2).

                                                 But not long afterward, the keywords subclause appeared, and when it
                                                 did, checking of values in reserved fields became "not require", which
                                                 is easily interpreted as "may" (e.g., FC-FS).

                                                 One could simply say "that's how we decided to do it, so live with it",
                                                 except some very recent standards have placed the prohibition in the
                                                 keywords subclause (e.g., FC-SB-4), and some have the permissive
                                                 checking in their keywords subclause, and still have the probition in
                                                 their editorial conventions clause ☺ (e.g., FC-LS-2, FC-GS-6).

                                                 So, is it to be a free-for-all?
