I'm sure a very small number of people will insist that they can read RFCs on an 80x24 console, but I suspect that number is much smaller than those who use terminal programs that have variable-width windows.
We appear to be straying into the ASCII art discussion. I think it's fine if the printed format is not canonical, and doesn't contain all the artwork. I think adding ten characters to the right isn't going to solve the diagramming problem.
