Greg - I have one minor disagreement with your explanation:

RFC 3736 doesn't describe procedures or a distinct protocol, per se.  It is
intended to describe that part of the protocol that a server or a host must
implement if all it intends to support is the Information-Request message

After reading this thread, I am leaning toward favoring the use of the
message exchanges (or some defined shorthand) rather than "RFC 3315" and
"RFC 3736" to describe the alternatives.
