The IETF lacks a standards compliance authority.
Absent that, there's simply no point in claiming "RFC", or even
"standards track RFC" means *anything*.
You seem to continue to be concerned that the uninformed can't
distinguish standards-track RFCs from other docs (including non-binding
informational docs produced throughout the IETF, not just as independent
submissions). By asserting that "logo'd" docs are different, you are
simply moving the problem.
Now you need to explain to the uninformed that the logo has special
meaning when it appears. We already have a logo for that - it's the
ASCII text "standards track".
