If I recall correctly, one of arguments against publication is that 
there is a high cost to updating such a RFC.

If the Style Guide is published as a RFC:

    (a) it gets wide dissemination

    (b) there is a stable reference

    (c) rfc2223bis doesn't need to be work in progress
        for another six years

    (d) Authors can be advised to read a RFC to understand
        how to write a RFC
