Informative References need to be updated

RFC 4312 apparently has been published a bit later than, but
closely coordinated with, the new IPsec document suite (RFC 430x).

Accordingly, the Normative Reference [ESP] of RFC 4312 points to
the new ESP RFC 4303, as expected.

But surprisingly, the Informative References are not updated
I would have expected [ARCH] pointing to RFC 4301 (that has
obsoleted RFC 2401), and at least an additional Ref. to IKEv2
(RFC 4306, which substantially amends/updates the old RFC 2409
[IKE]) -- with title and text of Section 4 slightly adapted.
The current text and Ref. [IKE] even might lead to the mis-
conception that the Camellia cipher would not be suitable for
use with IKEv2 (a statement certainly not intended by you).
