Change control can be useful for IDs (using the author's source, which
might support revision), but very few RFCs are ever "bis'd", and benefit
from a clean-slate revision more than mere incremental editing. I.e.,
revision support may be useful for author source, but isn't relevant for
either the submission or output formats.
