As far as I know, there are several categories in the standardisation process
of the IETF:
proposed standard --> draft standard --> (real) standard

There exists also other categories:
experimental, informational, historical

The last specification of HTTP 1.0 is defined in the RFC 1945 but this
is 'just' an informational specification.

Can this specification be used as *the* reference of HTTP 1.0 or are there
any other RFCs which are 'more official' (i.e. draft standard or even real
standard)?
