This did not rise to the level of blocking, but I found this disquieting:


   (2a) only indicate a preference to not use CRCs on the explicit
       request of the system administrator, via an interface not defined
       in this spec.  The default configuration for a connection MUST be
       to use CRCs.

<snip>

   The decision for hosts to request CRC suppression MAY be made on an
   administrative basis for any path that provides equivalent protection
   from undetected errors as an end-to-end CRC32c.


Like many "consenting adults" statements in protocol documents, it leaves open
how the two consent.  The second statement also presumes path stability,
which seems a pretty dubious proposition for anything not limited to a single
link.

AOne deterministic approach
