Greetings agin. The -00 says:
=====
   Submission format = the format submitted to the RFC Editor by
   authors.

      *  might not be the same as the canonical formats (though it would
         make the workflow somewhat simpler for the RFC Editor if it
         were);

      *  will be converted to another format for further processing and
         publication if necessary

      *  Currently: .txt (required), XML (optional), NROFF (optional) 
=====

"Authors" do not submit to the RFC Editor: stream managers do.

The last bullet is ambiguous: it makes it sound like, based on an option, XML or NROFF might be a submission format. Better:
      *  Currently, the required submission format is text. That that text was
         generated by XML or NROFF, those files may optionally be turned in
         as well.
