[rfc-i] EOL in draft-flanagan-plaintext-04

Section 4.3 of -04 spends a couple of paragraphs talking about having 
different EOL markers on different OSes, and what some transports might 
want to see. I think this is confusing what the RFC Editor will produce 
and publish with what people might find lying around after it's been 
moved off the RFC Editor's website.

I think this document should specify exactly what the plaintext 
publication format will contain (and what will be signable).
I _don't_ think the plan is to publish versions with the various line 
ending styles. Unless that's wrong, please pick one and say what it is.

It's ok to warn people that their own tools might change the line 
endings for them, but don't make it look like the variants are part of 
what's published.
