Heather, you just don't understand.  The IETF is a force unto itself. 
We've been around a long time. Hell, we changed the world.  So  everyone 
should know how to access our documents, without having to use someone 
else's citation conventions.  What we've got has been working for 
decades, so it doesn't matter what other folk do or want.
