No. html5shim  for old IEs.

There shouldn't be a need for any <div>.
use <header> and <footer> e.g. everything until
the introduction section goes into a <header>
the "abstract" is the only textual <section> in there.
the toc <ul>s are inside are inside a <nav>
the visible "metadata" may be in an <aside><dl> for example.

Styled <div> are a last method to solve presentation issues
which should not exist for rfcs.

the template for an index.html of html5reset.org goes a bit far for
the purposes of rfcs. A subset of the mechanisms is sufficient.
