Sure, but my point is that the protocol docs do not indicate Microsoft's
unfortunate behaviour in this area (clients should be clients, not
symmetric active), even in the windows-specific behaviours section.
I'm well aware that the registry setting can be modified, but in terms
of interoperability the pain comes from existing clients over which a
server implementer does not have control.
The fundamental flaw is in Microsoft's implementation in this case.
