on this point, I can claim to speak with a tiny bit of authority.
just to make the formalities clear:
1) The author of draft-higgs chose not to grant to the IETF the rights to
publish his draft as an RFC, even if it wanted to. See the copyright
notice in the preface ("is NOT offered in conformance with...")
2) The author of draft-higgs has not asked the RFC Editor or the IESG to
consider publishing his document as any type of RFC (informational or
BCP; standards-track would be inappropriate for this text)
3) There has been no indication that a request for such publication would
be met with a positive response. Especially, there has been no
demonstration of the IETF consensus required for BCP publication; info
RFCs are not the IETF's opinion about anything.
Publishing an internet-draft is easy, and can be done by anyone; checking
is minimal - basically, they check that it looks like ASCII, that the
author can be identified, and the boilerplate is in place. No checking on
In short - this is a document written by someone using the name "S. Higgs".
Nothing more than that.
