The problem is when you have sentences like "As it says on the bottom of page 4 in RFC 7231, doing this violates a MUST NOT" start appearing on mailing lists and documents. Because this requires all other readers to also get the paginated ASCII version and look at page 4. 

It's one thing to say it on the mailing list; in that context it seems fine.   But it should be the rule that references are not done this way in published documents (and I can't recall the last time I saw such a reference in a published document).
