The important question is what MUST be submitted to the RFC editor in order
to enable her to generate all of these formats.  I would suggest that the
lineprinter format does not have enough tagging of content to make the
generation easy enough.  The two formats that we have that could be made to
work are xml2rfc and HTML, afaict.
