REQUIREMENTS says "well documented", so I think you might as well 
mention one or two recommended checkers/linters in the nsd or nsdc 
manpages, and it also says "conformity to relevant RFCs", which I 
assumed to mean that even if I do feed nsdc bad input, nsd's answers 
won't flagrantly violate the RFCs.
