[rfc-i] draft-iab-rfcformatreq-01: fixed-width != ASCII

ASCII does not imply a fixed-width font.

However, the beginning of section 2 doesn't state the restriction
to a single fixed-width font (and doesn't forbid italics or bold).

Perhaps as a result, the "Requirements to be retired" section
doesn't mention these restrictions either.

Also there is no discussion of pros and cons for a fixed-width
font as such.
