That's a feature.  Scholar doesn't want to index every random web page, 
only the ones that look like journal articles.  If you look at the breadth 
of stuff that Scholar does index, it's apparent that their heuristics work 
pretty well.

As I think I said before, there are probably other indexes with similar 
rules, so if we fix up the online RFCs so Scholar can find them, the other 
places will find them, too.
