[rfc-i] Acknowledgements and Contributors as non-sections

I'm missing something.  What's the problem with unnumbered sections?

They can still have anchors.  They can still be referenced from within
the document as well as from outside.  If xml2rfc can't generate said
anchors or references, well, then it should learn.

Unnumbered sections work just fine in other systems.

I'd rather have unnumbered sections than untitled numbered sections/appendices.

If updating xml2rfc is out of the question, then sure, deprecating
unnumbered sections and requiring explicit sections/appendices for
acknowledgements/author sections would be a decent fallback.
