The draft suggests ordering content as follows:

      7.  Body of the Memo            [Required]
       7a.  Contributors
       7b.  Acknowledgments
       7c.  Security Considerations   [Required]
       7d.  IANA Considerations
       7e.  Appendixes
       7f.  References
 
RFC 2277, a.k.a. BCP 18 discusses internationalization and says:

   In documents that deal with internationalization issues at all, a
   synopsis of the approaches chosen for internationalization SHOULD be
   collected into a section called "Internationalization
   considerations", and placed next to the Security Considerations
   section.

For the sake of consistency, does RFC-Editor recommend "next to"
being between Acknowledgments and Security Considerations, or
between Security Considerations and IANA Considerations?

[there should probably be some discussion of this matter in the next
revision of the draft]
