*> o STD1 references Draft Standards and Proposed Standards, which an
*> "Internet Standard" (per RFC2026) is not allowed to do, but an
*> Informational doc can.
*> o STD1 contains no normative language, and nothing one can claim
*> conformance to or implement. Instead, it is basically a roadmap
*> document (and roadmap RFCs are Informational).

not have to, and indeed probably cannot, follow the same rules as
the documents it indexes. It is a unique kind of beast. As in
Goeddels (sp?) theorem.
Oh well, let's quit and do something more useful.
