(1) It seems the formatting is broken? Is the first entry really 
supposed to be different from the second one?

(2) Why do the individual entries not have a link to 
<http://www.rfc-editor.org/info/rfc#>?

(3) What if the spec prose actually wants to refer to one of the 
documents in the document set?

Best regards, Julian
