TL;DR answer: no.

Long answer: There is a raging debate about this about once a year, often on the main IETF mailing list, making that unusable for about two weeks in a row.  

Each time, the result is to stick with the RFC format.

Yes.  We are different.
(In many ways, not just this one, but definitely in this one.)

Most definitely don't debate it here.
