Informative references to an obsoleted RFC should be okay, if the
status "obsolete" is obvious.  

For an approved RFC in the editor queue referencing RFC 850 compare
<http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-usefor-usefor-12#section-7.2>.

IANA got the idea and registered Date-Received specified in RFC 850
as obsolete header field: 
<http://www.iana.org/assignments/message-headers/perm-headers.html>
