Re: Fwd: Protocol Action: 'Moving mailserver: URI scheme to historic' to Proposed Standard (draft-melnikov-mailserver-uri-to-historic-00.txt)

Per RFC 2026, Informational RFCs explicitly do not reflect consensus of
the Internet community:

   An "Informational" specification is published for the general
   information of the Internet community, and does not represent an
   Internet community consensus or recommendation.

However, moving the mailserver URI scheme to historic has consensus.
Therefore, publication of this document as an Informational RFC seems
incorrect, and publication on the standards track seems correct.
