This is short and to the point. If the community agrees, we can probably get this done easily.

> Abstract:
>   RFC 2026 places restrictions on how Internet-Drafts can be referred
>   to in RFCs.  Over time, the way that the IETF community uses
>   sometimes make RFCs inaccurate (because many drafts that are referred
>   to are not actually "works in progress", and also make references to
>   Internet-Drafts nearly useless to RFC readers.  This document updates
>   the one part of RFC 2026, and the one part of RFC 7322, that covers
>   referencing Internet-Drafts.
