Default Advisory, not Error

This is my take on it.
I see nothing in the book to mandate that a responder must return the same label as was set. To suggest this rule would cause problems with PIDs such as RESET_DEVICE. Also consider the multi-controller environment of E1.33.

No, this is categorically an Advisory condition.
In the good practice guide, I agree that the better implementation is to return a string length truncated to the capability of the responder. A truncated string should also be reported as an Advisory in a test condition.
