I have nothing to add. Just letting know I share the same opinion.

    I do not oppose that if this is the consensus but I still see it as 
pointless to provide *any* specific minimum limit here, and I do not see the 
problem with going lower than RFC5730 since this extension is optional and, 
hopefully, if it is used it means the relevant registry has decided to put more 
energy and work around security measures so you could hope they would deal with 
this minimum issue gracefully (that is enforcing something higher than 6, and 
not lower, if they do define the space of characters allowed too).
