Like tabs vs spaces, or Pokémon vs Digimon, the RJ45 boot is arguably a cause of controversy for many. Is it, however, in the official design specification for the RJ45 connector, or is it a non-standard addition?
The existence of so many boot designs could suggest that it is non-standard; some are just a tab, others an all-encompassing shroud. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find conclusive evidence to support or dismiss this hypothesis.

For example, was the design team behind FN - 63697 just following the official RJ45 specification?
Just to be clear, I am referring specifically to the RJ45 connector, not the cable that it carries.
