The security considerations say:

   Since RFCs are sometimes exchanged outside the normal Web sandboxing
   mechanism (such as using the "rsync" program to a mirror site) then
   loaded from a local file, more care must be taken with the HTML than
   is ordinary on the web.

Is that care already factored into the specification?  If so, please say that.  If not, what additional care is needed?
