Placeholder ticket - References

Severity: - Keywords:


What are the rules in markdown for when one should reference an RFC by number, and when by its name?

For instance, there are numerous places in the doc right now that say "[RFC7208]" where "SPF" would read better.

Use this ticket to fix overuse of normative references.

I'd just add a mention. e.g. "blah blah SPF [RFC7208]."

It's a lot easier to find the references if they're all by RFC number.
