[rfc-i] references vs front matter

here's a simple question:

Let's say RFC YYYY obsoletes RFC XXXX, and says so on the front page.

However, RFC XXXX isn't mentioned anywhere else throughout the text.

Should it still contain an Informative Reference to RFC XXXX? I would 
think so, but the RFC-Editor seems to disagree.

BR, Julian
