Proposal:

 - the landing page for the canonical URI for any RFC should be a web
page like the tools.ietf.org rfc pages: the HTML rendering of the RFC
with links to alternative formats at the top

 - if Accept: is set to some other content type that is supported,
then the server should return that format of the RFC instead the HTML
rendering.

This will make it trivial to write "curl -H 'Accept: application/pdf'
... | print -" and so on.
