The specs are not wrong if you would read them:
| the name and email address of the key holder. *By convention*, it
| includes an RFC 2822 (#RFC2822) mail name-addr, but there are no
Convention \Con*ven"tion\, n. [L. conventio: cf. F. convention.
5. An agreement or contract less formal than, or preliminary
to, a treaty; an informal compact, as between commanders
of armies in respect to suspension of hostilities, or
between states; also, a formal agreement between
governments or sovereign powers; as, a postal convention
between two governments.
In German "Sitte" oder "Brauch". In contrast:
4. A detailed listing or description of the required
properties of some object proposed to be built or bought;
-- usually used in the plural; as, the building
specifications require that it withstand an earthquake of
magnitude 8; the program specifications require an option
to change the menus.
Instead of finalizing RFC4880bis, which has all its goals already
implemented, some members of the WG kept on raising new items for what
the WG has never been chartered. The outcome of all that mess is that
implementers will simply ignore the fact that there won't be an RFC and
implement the current I-D.
