It is more likely that I will open the local copy of the RFC in its downloaded location, so the relative links would work fine.

I don't know. How do you download the RFC? If you just click File-->Save As… in a browser, you will normally just save the HTML file, or batch-use wget to download a bunch of them. Yes, some browsers have the ability to save all contents in a single file, but they are not always interoperable between browsers (can anything other than Safari read .webarchive?). Besides, single files are easier to mail.
