Since, I'm apparently the one who "told" you this, let me
clarify. What I thought I requested was taking out all references to a
particular RFC being a "standard" (vs. informational or something
else). Just referring to the RFCs as RFCs is preferred. As a general
rule, an RFC shouldn't be stating what the status of another RFC is,
since this can change over time.

My comments should not be interpreted as precluding making the changes
Margaret is requesting.
