The "easiest" resolution is to keep it informational. I personally
think it's irresponsible, but I won't necessarily make an objection to
that if the majority of wg accepts that.

 
Better yet, I think we should institute a new reference category: "Obfuscational"
to go with the existing "Normative" and "Informational". Obfuscational references
are those used to intentionally confuse the reader, as opposed to the other
categories which have confusion as an unadvertised side benefit.
 
BTW, every time I have mentioned the "I*" word on this list the chairs have
acted quickly and firmly to shut down the discussion, so I guess it's OK now?
