"should" in legal texts?

Since it appears that you're referring to requirements analysis or contracts specifications, the governing body or contracting agency should specify what the language requirements will be. In some instances I've been involved with, anything not specifically using shall (which would include should) is not considered to be a true requirement (that is, failure to abide by it is not ground for breach of contract).

However, if you look at the IETF Standard for RFC writing, they use shall, must, or required to indicate a true requirement. Should is used to mean a recommendation only.
