[rfc-i] extension for xml2rfc files?

I don't know if this is the proper place to bring this up, but...

AFAIK source files intended to processing by xml2rfc typically have a 
.xml extension. (At least that seems to be what is used in tools.) IMO 
this is inappropriate - the extension ought to be more specific to the 
expected format of the document. ISTM that introduction of this format 
as the canonical form would be a good time adopt some more appropriate 
extension.

I don't have a particular proposal in mind. I can think of a bunch of 
possibilities:

.xml2rfc
.rfc
.xml.rfc
.rfc.xml

I don't love any of those.

	Thanks,
	Paul
