If people are mirroring the bibxml database to run xml2rfc on their

updated where <format> is deprecated, in general deprecated features
should generate a warning.  That's all I'm suggesting.

Can I suggest that it make it into some plans?  It's easier for the RFC
Editor to catch as catch can than it is for people (most of whom are not
on this mailing list) to email citations at rfc-editor.org.
