And it doesn't help, that even if you had the correct link, people would have
reached a page asking them to "login" (optionally... ) to get the document.
And you can't even refer to the correct version of the document.
I guess this is an RFC-EDITOR problem because we reference things.
I'd love it if we could have an rfc-editor.org/ short-URL redirector that
we would use to insert a second URL in (maybe into the XML only?) that
leads to our cached copy. Or to the Internet Archive's cached copy.
