I'd like to support this in the Word template as well. It would be
useful, IMO, in both places to have some suggested formats for such
references. The IEEE version is:
To85 (Touch 1985)
ToEg92 (Touch Eggert 1992)
I.e., use the first two letters of the first author's last name, adding
up to one additional author, and the last two digits of publication
year. Collisions are resolved by lower-case alphabet:
(all have a suffix if any do).
There are other versions that work:
etc. It doesn't matter which one, but it'd be useful to at least suggest
something (even if it isn't desirable to enforce).
Also, IMO it'd be useful to cite RFCs uniformly as:
(always using 4 digits? or using 3?)
