There is FYI 17 (Toa of IETF) which might get updated if 
draft-hoffman-tao4677bis is published.

RFC 1150 mentions that "FYIs are intended for a wide audience".  The 
intended status of draft-ietf-dnsop-as112-under-attack-help-help is 
"Informational".  That draft targets a wider readership.

I suggest leaving the decision of whether a FYI number should be 
assigned to the stream approver.
