Whenever the documentation says "you must not" it really says "don't do
that or your application *will* crash, burn and die"... Of course I can
allocate storage for the string, copy it's content and then free or -
nothing will happen. How would it cause a crash - it's my own pointer.

That's exactly the line between "not required to", "should not" and
"must not": The current wording suggests that I may not even touch e.g.
malloc which is confusing and in fact to be ignored in it's current state.
