I'm fine with people using XML2RFC to generate a new RFC format, but I think requiring these to be converted back into XML2RFC is too constraining.

I would even prefer the situation where we require XML2RFC source along with the RFCng during a transition phase (that could take a year or two) over the two-way conversion requirement.
