[rfc-i] Update on miscategorized RFCs

During the rfcplusplus BoF at IETF 102, the BoF chairs presented slides
that included data regarding how many standards track and BCP documents
were published in the various document streams. The information for
those slides came out of a query to the RFC Editor database, and
uncovered that 22 documents  had been attributed to the Independent
Submission stream incorrectly. .
After evaluating each of those documents, the RFC Editor determined that
all 22 were published between April 2003 - August 2004. The source data
was recorded incorrectly at that time.
The categorization of those documents has been corrected, and a broader
data audit will be done later this year to make sure there are no
similar miscategorizations of, for example, IETF RFCs that should be
marked as in the Independent Submissions stream.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
