Unless someone objects, I'm putting together a short preso about
the formats we use now (line printer image aka plain ASCII, nroff,
and xml2rfc), issues with current format (non-ASCII names, other
non-ASCII text, graphics, metadata), and some considerations about
any formats we might want to use (e.g., stable, open, adequate tools,
unpaid draft authors can and will use them).
