Perhaps. I actually find a lot of ABNF specs are not as clear as they
could be to humans because they are trying to describe the valid
inputs as strictly as possible. In many cases I think the spec would
be more clear if the ABNF were relaxed and other constraints were
expressed at appropriate levels.
