I have seen a number of sites that turn RFC plain text into properly
flowing HTML, usually with "bugs" with indented text and ASCII art and
so on, mainly, it seemed, because those were ad-hoc 80/20 good-enough
projects. I don't know of anything current or comprehensive, but if
people want this, it should not be too difficult to come up with some
solution that works well. Putting it around, I would want this for all
RFCs, not just for RFC 7000+, so looking into how to turn plain text
RFCs into better HTML is likely a better use of resources than trying
to make this a major concern for future formats.
