I have a few comments about draft-iab-rfcformatreq-00. In Section 2.1.2:
"The IETF works in ASCII (and English)."
"However, English is the primary language in which IETF business
is conducted, and English is the official publication language
I suggest changing the text to:
English is the official publication language for RFCs.
In Section 3.2:
"* There must be support for Accessibility, including alternative
text for images, limitations on color."
There is a discussion of the color limitation in the fifth paragraph
of that subsection. I suggest removing sentence quoted above and
replacing it with something along the lines of "graphics should be
accompanied by explanatory text". The WCAG20 reference can be removed.
P.S. The IETF used English to communicate. ASCII was the standard
for character encoding as email was used as the primary means of communication.
