When considering “Is there a better way to do this?”
It requires 2 xrefs to get the desired output (using sectionFormat=“bare” for the first one).
Note: As discussed with Henrik Nov. 2019.
Example A (from rfc8658.notprepped.xml)
described in Section <xref target="RFC3575" section="2" sectionFormat="bare">IANA Considerations</xref> of <xref target="RFC3575"/>
described in Section 2 (IANA Considerations) of [RFC3575]
Example B (from rfc8731.notprepped.xml)
defined in Section <xref target="RFC5656" section="7.1" sectionFormat="bare">ECDH Message Numbers</xref> of <xref target="RFC5656"/>
defined in Section 7.1 (ECDH Message Numbers) of [RFC5656]
bc it includes square brackets around the title in the text file
Example from rfc8955.xml (draft-ietf-idr-rfc5575bis-27) in AUTH48
This document obsoletes "<xref target="RFC5575" format="title"/>" <xref target="RFC5575" format="default"/>
PDF and HTML are OK, but the text output is not correct
This document obsoletes "["Dissemination of Flow Specification Rules"]" [RFC5575]
Also: If we manually add quotes for the title to be quoted (as in the example above), the text rendering automatically puts quotes in - resulting in errored output (2 sets of quotes).
Without the added quotes, we get the following:
This document obsoletes ["Dissemination of Flow Specification Rules"] [RFC5575]
It's possible to include more info when <contact> is outside <t> (e.g., a contributor listed in the style of an address block), but when the <contact> is in <t>, it's not possible. So we end up putting the data about the individual outside the <contact> element.
a) name + org
<t><contact fullname=“Fabio Maino”/>, Cisco Systems, Inc.</t>
(file: draft-ietf-lisp-gpe-19.xml - in the queue)
Original (in a list):
o Fabio Maino, Cisco Systems, Inc.
b) name + email
<t><contact fullname=“Ari Keränen”/> <firstname.lastname@example.org></t>
Original (in a registration template):
Author: Ari Keranen email@example.com
c) name + email + org
<t><contact fullname=“Jiantao Fu”/> <firstname.lastname@example.org> of Cisco Systems
Original (in a paragraph in “Contributors”):
Jiantao Fu <email@example.com> of Cisco Systems
Thinking aloud: ability to put the data in the contact element and have a decent rendering when in <t>. (Currently, if we put additional data in the contact element when it's in <t>, the additional data doesn't appear in the output at all.)

workaround: using <br/> (per reply from Henrik)
suggestion from Jean for dl's newline attribute: newline=“false|break|space”
