Sam,

with all due respect: I don't think I'm asking too much:

- do *you* consider the reference to be informative?

and

- what exactly does it mean when you say "While it was not found to be 
the strongest objection, the fact that the IETF no longer considers this 
RFC to be official is a serious issue is a strong objection that merits 
consideration by the Working Group."?

It depends on the answers to these whether I'll file new bugs or 
consider a formal objection.

Best regards, Julian
