Just got this wonderful thing in my stocking today:
        RFC 7416

        Title:      A Security Threat Analysis for
                    the Routing Protocol for Low-Power and
                    Lossy Networks (RPLs)
...
        URL:        https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc7416.txt

MANY MANY thanks for the super work that the RFC editor team does...

Why does it not mention the format-independant URL and way
to actually find all the meta info, that is:
   http://www.rfc-editor.org/info/rfc7416

which isn't mentioned at all.
It seems that not only would having this URL in the body of the announcement
better socialize this entry point into rfc-editor.org, but it would also
raise the search engine rank (from the archives of the various lists pointing
at it) for that web page.  That would better lead people to the meta info,
and therefore the obsoleted-by, and the errata.
