Summary 0001720: Remove 'should' for 'makefile authors'
Description Line 105283 says:
> Although make expands macros that do not exist to an empty string, makefile authors should be aware that it is not safe to assume that a macro which has not intentionally been set to a specific value will expand to an empty string for everyone who uses the makefile.

The part 'makefile authors should be aware that' does not add anything to the sentence.
Desired Action Remove 'makefile authors should be aware that'.

Same topic, line 105388: 'It is important to be careful' is redundant.

If it weren't important, it wouldn't be included in this standard.
The word 'careful' is too unspecific to be actionable.
