The most important comment for me as start message is that the 1st April RFC should be categorised different than IETF standards. IMHO, The past RFC style is not a reasonable style of the world or the future best practices. In considering our standards business and our documents reputation, we should not make jokes with our followers only if we are sure all like such jokes.

I don't want to stop that Style type, but it should be easily discriminated by readers/users from other real work/business.

WG] Please explain how the combination of the publish date, the doc status (usually info or experimental) plus this boilerplate (below) isn’t enough to distinguish this from standards?

"Status of This Memo

   This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
   published for informational purposes.

   This is a contribution to the RFC Series, independently of any other
   RFC stream.  The RFC Editor has chosen to publish this document at
   its discretion and makes no statement about its value for
   implementation or deployment.  Documents approved for publication by
   the RFC Editor are not a candidate for any level of Internet
   Standard; see Section 2 of RFC 5741<https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5741#section-2>."

I’d tell you a UDP joke, but you probably won’t get it…
