While true, being a violation that is, I wouldn't worry about it.
I.e., make the script loose here. It's like doing 60 in a 55 zone,
on paper it's an infraction but it makes no material difference.
There are many places where the old RFCs either over or under
specified actions. This is a case over over specification.
