Not 'odd'.  Fully specified in the RFC.  Anyone that did not implement
the spec gets what they deserve.

IMHO, better for a packet that can be misinterpreted be dropped, Like 
the new non-standard Google NTP.  Unmarked these new packets can cause

But, to be fair, some assert the spec is a bit ambiguous. So any
extention should be a new RFC.  Like Autokey.
