The tools should be under xml2rfc.ietf.org, since some of them (the online
copy of xml2rfc... etc...)  involve some amount of active computing.

The .xml files should be under xml.ietf.org, and should be widely and easily
mirrored, since they are just static files in the end.

The rfc-editor{.org} should have xml.rfc-editor.org which should have the
master copy of all reference.RFCXXXX.xml files, and those links should also
be present in the metadata returned by rfc-editor.org/doc/rfcXXXX.

Yes, canonically that should be the case, but I think that mirrors make
sense, and our tools should do URN resolution to find a copy.
