RFC 2026, section 4.2.4, paragraph 1 says:

#   A specification that has been superseded by a more recent
#   specification or is for any other reason considered to be obsolete is
#   assigned to the "Historic" level.  (Purists have suggested that the
#   word should be "Historical"; however, at this point the use of
#   "Historic" is historical.)

http://www.w3.org/Addressing/schemes is marked obsolete, but may still
have some interest.
