Hi,

while working on updating references, it became clear that moving them 
around (because of reclassifying them) causes lots of diffs in the ASCII 
version (because of changed numbering).

All of this could be avoided by switching to symbolic references, such as

     RFC2396 [RFC2396]

or even just

     [RFC2396]

instead of

     RFC2396 [12]

(Note that the 2nd form is the one used by RoyF in the URI specs.)

Now would be a relatively painless moment to do that -- I would create a 
-02 draft based on -01, just doing this single change (and would move 
the other pending changes into an -03 draft).

Thoughts?

Best regards, Julian
