More concretely:

This isn't identical to what Dimitris proposed, to try to close the gaps
identified. It tries to use terms that are unused by RFC 5019/6960 - such
as "unused" - to avoid confusion with "unknown".

It's not perfect, but I'm curious if that gets closer to a minimal and
clear change.
