Ticket #170 (closed design: fixed)
Do not require "updates" relation for specs that register status codes or method names
|Reported by:||email@example.com||Owned by:|

In Part 2 we currently state for both:
"Any document registering new method names should be traceable through statuses of either 'Obsoletes' or 'Updates' to this document."
IMHO this doesn't make sense; the "updates" relation shouldn't be used just because a specification uses a well-defined extension point that already has a registry.
Proposal: remove the requirement from sections 2.1 (method names) and 4.1 (status codes).
- Status changed from new to closed
- Resolution set to fixed
