Sorry to prolong the debate but I think Dave and Ted are slightly
mixing two questions.
Q1: (Heather's question). Should we define markup for magic words
that have special meaning for a particular RFC stream? For example,
the IAB stream uses "DECREES" for particularly important edicts
and the Independent stream uses "RUBBISH" for commentary on
Q2: What are the magic words used by the IETF stream and what do
Q1 is an RFC Editor discussion. Q2 is an IETF discussion.
