The community that has an interest in the RFC Series. I'd say those  
are the people who publish via the various streams, and the readers  
and users of RFCs. One could argue that the community is those who are  
impacted by RFCs and that would be an even larger group of people. For  
these purposes I'd say authors and readers, but that's just personal.

Anyway, because this community is a superset of the IETF community  
consensus of that community is not sought on an IETF list but on the  
rfc-interest list. In the past we have pointed the IETF community, but  
also the RIR communities to the rfc-interest list.
