+1

Ugh, I never looked into the "goals" before.

RFC 1950 up to 1952 are informational, if you want them as "normative"
that's anyway a downref.

You can replace 2048 by 4288 + 4289, as BCP that would be no downref.
RFC 1766 is now RFC 4646, also a BCP.  No idea what "H.5" tries to say.

RFC 1864 is a DS (didn't know this, funny), if you need an STD we could
try to promote it.  Nobody's going to modify Content-MD5, my crystal-
ball says.

RFC 2396 is now 3986 (STD 66).  RFC822ABNF will go (4234bis is an STD).
I think that leaves 2617bis, 2822upd, and the rest of MIME as downrefs.

BTW, the draft mentions WAIS (the protocol), RFC 4156 says that WAIS
(the URI-scheme) is "historic".  How about removing that cruft ?
