But, irrespective of how they look stylistically, I think most would just settle for normative HTML specs from the IETF with proper marked-up/linkable definitions, algorithms, and sections (and particularly, for the IETF deprecate the paginated text-only format so their is only one authoritative source in HTML).

+1. Aligning the styles and structure would be cool, but unnecessary.
All I want for Christmas is RFCs in HTML and utf-8, properly linked up
and anchored.  The fact that they still produce pure-text documents
formatted for printing 80-column wide is either a travesty or a really
awesome troll.
