There isn’t one in the vocabulary.

Yes, that’s why I said it is a hack.
(For .txt output, the vertical space is truncated by the page length, which is known to be less than 999 lines.
For .html output, xml2rfcv2 generates 999 <br/> elements, which is not what one would want.)
I listed those usages of vspace not because I wouldn’t be happy for it to go away, but just to point out that those usages need to be covered by any vocabulary that doesn't have vspace.
