+1. Let's make RFCs easy to use, by including useful information such as 
author's first names. We call each other Ted and Paul and Dave, not Mr. 
Crocker and so on, and it's er helpful to have that information in the 
documents we produce.

Regards,   Martin.

It's even worse in the references section where you have to go to the referenced document to get the info.
