Forgive my veering from the dominant focus of this thread, so I can
provide some actual content feedback, but...
1. It probably would be useful to have the document provide more
justification and use text, to make clear what the benefits of adding
DOIs to RFCs (and Internet-Drafts?) will be.
2. Section two provides the actual format specification.
a) I suggest adding ABNF to this, along the lines of:
ietf-doi: doi-url "/" ietf-specific
ietf-specific: "10.123456" "/" ietf-series "/" series-num
ietf-series: "bcp", "std", "rfc"
b) As indicated in the above bnf, I suggest separating the series
label from the document number through a syntax convention, rather than
requiring the parser to know all the strings.
