Looking at 

-- snip --
    <document source>  This describes the area where the work originates.
       Historically, all RFCs were labeled Network Working Group.
       "Network Working Group" refers to the original version of today's
       IETF when people from the original set of ARPANET sites and
       whomever else was interested -- the meetings were open -- got
       together to discuss, design and document proposed protocols
       [RFC0003].  Here, we obsolete the term "Network Working Group" in
       order to indicate the originating stream.

       The <document source> is the name of the RFC stream, as defined in
       [RFC4844] and its successors.  At the time of this publication,
       the streams, and therefore the possible entries are:

       *  Internet Engineering Task Force

       *  Internet Architecture Board

       *  Internet Research Task Force

       *  Independent
-- snip --

So, "Internet Engineering Task Force", "Internet Architecture Board", 
"Internet Research Task Force", or "Independent" would appear in the 
upper left corner, right?

For the last case ("Independent") this will look slightly funny; it 
requires the reader to know that this field identifies a publication
