RFC 7841 requires this sort of text in the boilerplate:
For IETF stream documents, a similar reference is added: "Further
information on (BCPs or Internet Standards) is available in Section 2
of RFC 7841 <https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7841#section-2>." for
BCP and Standard Track documents; "Not all
documents approved by the IESG are a candidate for any level of
Internet Standards; see Section 2 of RFC 7841
<https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7841#section-2>." for all other
The precise boilerplate differs but they all require something.
Should I add this as a normative or an informative reference? I think it
should be normative but the text does not make this clear.
In my document prep system, it has to be entered as one or the other in the
catalog to create the link.
