Sure, but just because some uses don't require a feature does not
imply that it shouldn't be a "MUST."  For example, VPNs don't use AH,
but AH is still a MUST.  Similarly, if NAT-T is defined as "MUST
implement if you support ipv4", it does not imply that you have to
_USE_ NAT-T.

Just a reminder that "must implement" does not imply "must use."
