Here's the original text from RFC 760, section 3.2 (January 1980):
The implementation of a protocol must be robust. Each implementation
must expect to interoperate with others created by different
individuals. While the goal of this specification is to be explicit
about the protocol there is the possibility of differing
interpretations. In general, an implementation should be conservative
in its sending behavior, and liberal in its receiving behavior. That
is, it should be careful to send well-formed datagrams, but should
accept any datagram that it can interpret (e.g., not object to
_technical_ errors where the meaning is still clear).
Emphasis added by me.
There are three kinds of people in the world: John Cowan
those who can count, cowan at ccil.org
and those who can't.
