The purpose of the text you seem to refer to is to say that
request/response transactions must happen over the same transport and
that the initiator chooses the transport. We do not talk about
unconfirmed traps here since it is more or less obvious that only the
sender can choose the transport for these messages.

Please propose concrete text and explain why it is needed to implement
SNMP over TCP. Note that this is not the document to describe things
that you might find missing in other SNMP documents.

Agreed. Fixed in my XML sources.
