I had the exact same question on referencing specs from IETF at F2F.
What are the implications of this since W3C policies are different from
IETF, and that we do not have everyone from IETF that contributed to
e.g. vCard in W3C?

Thanks,
Suresh

Yes we can. When we move on to more advanced maturity levels (typically,
CR) it becomes more of a problem, but in the early stages we're safe.

That, indeed, looks good.
