I'd like to support such proposal. I wanted to suggest this before, but 
Peter outran me :-) However this will create the following incident: 
such RFC obsoletes FYI 1 and, according to the longstanding  practice, 
should receive this number (FYI 1) whereas the whole sub-series is 

But, nevertheless, such document is obviously needed, I think.  Let's 
also wait for IESG yesterday's teleconference minutes to see the 
distinctive scene of what was decided.
