As far as I recollect, we didn't use "Internet Draft" in the
reference, so this isn't a change. From the previous style guide:
- From section 4.7f
Non-normative references to Internet-Drafts are allowed, but
they must take the following restricted form: the author(s),
the title, the phrase "Work in Progress", and the date; for
[doe13] Doe, J., "The Deployment of IPv6",
Work in Progress, May 2013.
