Uh, RFC4234 is ABNF. Perhaps you meant RFC3244?
I think if the answer to "why" is anything other than "to be compatible
with existing Windows", then it should at least touch on why you're not
implementing draft-ietf-krb-wg-kerberos-set-passwd-08.txt instead.
You say you're changing public functionality; are you planning on phasing
out the current kpasswd service?
