I've submitted version 05, it should be available in the repositories  
shortly. It contains the following wording:

   For IETF stream documents a similar reference is added: "Further
   information on [BCPs or Internet Standards] is available in Section 2
   of RFCXXXX." for BCP and Standard Track docments; "Not all documents
   approved by the IESG are candidate for any level of Internet
   Standards see Section 2 of RFCXXXX." for all other categories.

Next Step:

The document will be on the IAB agenda for next wednesday (Jan 21),  
after it will be submitted to the RFC editor. See my reply to John for  
a few thoughts on managing the transition.
