"authority" exists only if the RFC Editor can fire or penalize 
the Production House if they do not comply and comply in a 
satisfactory way.  If the contracts are separate, one either 
needs to give the RFC Editor the ability to direct the IAD to 
direct the Production House or the model needs to include some 
other mechanism to give "authority" and/or "direct" some
teeth.
Which of the RFC "letters" to the human brains within the those, 
which are still functional, but also the background of the RFC 
nr.1, like mstr. T. Edison first "patent" was the best in case 
of the fundamental issues to implement the issues within the TCP,
OSI, IBM standards. If the first number(s) or the most important
description(s) (like Stevens, Wright or Dijkstra etc) cannot 
take the responsibility (etc) then the best authority must take 
the experimental "status quo" ...
Remember that, especially if the contracts are awarded 
separately, the Production House may be a for-profit (and 
potentially "low-bid" activity, with every incentive to control 
costs in ways that might be incompatible with the RFC Editor's 
norms for quality.
All the best from the sunny Kraków:
