Actually, that doesn't do it either. The RFC Editor does not publish
the documents in numerical order. I propose "publication" so that
someone reading the RFC repository in date order will see all the
RFCs after this one in date order having the new stream names.

I agree with Danny on this: the terms seems lonely. "Independent"
looks particularly odd. (I live in a town where there are lots of car
window stickers that say "Independent". This is not a political
statement but a brand name for skateboard equipment that is popular
enough to be the #2 ranking on Google for the word "independent".)
