One usability comment:

As a frequent reader of RFC, primarily using the text format, it would be
great if there was a human readable tag, eg: as another header line indicating
enough about the format used by the document to quickly know what the
minimum required viewer is to get a guaranteed correct display
- ASCII, UTF8, HTML (when graphics are needed), ...

Eg:


Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)                        J. Reschke
Request for Comments: 8187                                    greenbytes
Obsoletes: 5987                                           September 2017
Category: Standards Track
Format: ASCII / UTF8 / "graphics" / ...
