A little digging...

   -- See: References, "Instructions to RFC Authors" (formerly RFC 2223).
   -- see section 2.11

             Specifies an earlier document that is replaced by the new
             document.  The new document can be used alone as a
             replacement for the obsoleted document.  The new document
             may contain revised information or all of the same
             information plus some new information, however extensive or
             brief that new information may be.
