[rfc-i] Decisions about non-technical content of RFCs

Greetings again. The current draft says:
Final decisions about the technical content of individual documents
are the exclusive responsibility of corresponding stream approvers.
That is hopefully non-controversial. However, it does not cover the non-technical content of RFCs. For example, without the consent of the corresponding stream approver:
- can the RFC Editor remove an author's name which was on the Internet Draft when publishing an RFC?
- can the RFC Editor change the contents of the Acknowledgements section?
- can the RFC Editor make the ASCII art prettier?
I can see the answer to this going either way and don't have a strong preference myself. However, the topic should be covered in the update to RFC 5620.
