"The length of the data unit for any instance of an implementation of XTS-AES shall not exceed 2^20 AES blocks. Note that Subclause 5.1 of Ref. recommends this limit but does not require it."
I apologize for missing the telecon. But I have a question. Previously, the only thing keeping the last two full sentences of this excerpt of 1619 was the words "shall" in the 1st and "should" in the 2nd, This draft proposes to replace "should" with "shall" in the 2nd of those sentences -- which only then begs the question of why the modified 2nd sentence (i.e. with the "shall" is not a direct contradiction of the sentence which precedes it?
