priming the pump:


    rfc-ref =     "[RFC" rfc-num "]" LWSP auth-name
                  [ "," sp role "," SP ]
                  %x22 title %x22 ","
                  [ "BCP" / "FYI" / "STD" series-num "," SP ]
                  "RFC" SP rfc-num "," SP
                  pub-date

    rfc-num =     ; assigned RFC number for the document

    auth-name =   last "," SP first "." SP

    last =        ; last name of author

    first -       ; first name of author

    role =        "ed."

    title =       ; document title

    series-num =  ; assigned number within the specialized series

    pub-date =    ; date of RFC issuance
