[rfc-i] Author line oddity in citations

I just noticed that the author line in citations has an oddity, in the sense that the name format is "Lastname, I." for all but the last author, where it is "I. Lastname."

[RFC5681]  Allman, M., Paxson, V., and E. Blanton, "TCP Congestion
           Control", RFC 5681, DOI 10.17487/RFC5681, September 2009,

Is this on purpose, e.g., following some common citation style? Just feels odd.
