Greetings again. This draft has a bunch of changes based on inconsistencies that were found as Joe was updating the HTML draft. They include:

- All section-y things now get the "sectionNumber" attribute, and all paragraph-y things get the "partNumber" attribute, to be filled in by the processor.

- <references> now requires a name for the section.

- Added the "quotedFrom" attribute to the <blockquote> element.

- Added the <boilerplate> element that is filed in by the processor. This replaces the "boilerplate" attribute of <rfc> that would not actually hold what we wanted.

- Said that output formats must decide what to do with an empty <xref>.

- Pointed to <https://www.rfc-editor.org/rse/wiki/doku.php?id=design:format-and-content-rfcs> for the discussion of restrictions on the canonical XML for RFCs.
