Looking at <>, this looks 
like a mix between "Specification Required" and "RFC Required". The 
difference to "Specification Required" being that only standards-track 
RFCs are allowed, and that for non-IETF documents we required "formal 
publication by a recognized standards body".

Is our case sufficiently different from "Specification Required" to 
justify defining a new rule? (I'm not sure, but I think we should make 
sure we considered it...)
