TLS Clients SHOULD audit what?

STHs? SCTs? Both?

Reading this section I've noticed that TLS clients are currently not strongly required to check the SCT (should rather than SHOULD).

Ben may have meant fetching audit paths as defined in 2.1.1., which is reasonable: If the SCT is the log's "promise" to incorporate the certificate into its tree, then fetching an audit path is the way to make sure the log kept its promise.

Marking issue as closed, please re-open if I still haven't fully grasped the meaning of this issue.
