"RFC" is a local namespace, with no formalized global anchoring.
Let me stress that: We have no globally unique naming scheme for our
documents. What we have is a global /addressing/ scheme, but that's not
very helpful when the document is stored elsewhere, absent a human
making the judgement about whether it is one of /our/ RFCs.
DOIs will fix that.
