Strangely, http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/normative
doesn't say anything about standards track RFCs or BCPs,
or about essential dependency for implementation.

I think an outsider who assumes the dictionary meaning of "normative"
will not be greatly misled. (We could perfectly well have called
them "Essential References", but we didn't.)
