Summarizing, here's my alternative (:-) proposal:

1) Add a <link> element as child of <rfc> (that can occur multiple times.

2) The link's target attribute is a URI.

For the ISSN, use the ISSN URN namespace.

For the DOI, use the DOI's URI.

Both can be identified by inspecting the URI scheme or URI scheme + URN 

If typing is needed, use link relations as per RFC 5988 (in an 
additional "rel" attribute).


   <link target="urn:issn:2070-1721"/>
   <link target="doi:whatever"/>

Best regards, Julian
