For the folks who have been saying no, you could always remind them 
that it was established practice to reference 2223bis.  The RFC 
Editor could publish 2223bis as Informational for the purposes of 
this exercise.  Once the RFC Editor is done with it, it shouldn't be 
a problem to reclassify the RFC as Historic.  The argument is that 
it's for the archival series.  A "work in progress" reference could 
be used if it's easier.  The RFC Editor also has the ability to make 
use of its long-lived URLs.

   Romanization of the author name will no longer be necessary; authors will
   be able to write their names in their own language.
