(IAB hat on, but not speaking for the IAB)
We're happy to continue to support the RSOC and the RFC editor with 
appropriately-composed stamps.

If this had turned into a problem, I would have brought it to more 
attention from the IAB, which *would* have cut into our time spent on 
other architecture issues.

However, I will say that having easily-understandable modern document 
formats to get the technical work of the IETF done *is* an architecture 
issue, at least in my mind.  When I'm doing architecture for large 
applications, the documentation, change control, testing, measurement, 
configuration, etc. are all a part of the system (not just the code), and 
the Internet has the same needs with respect to protocols.
