I personally think it is possible.  For example, authoritative RFC 
source is .txt file on RFC Editor's site, while we have a number of 
other sources for RFCs, not in .txt, such as 
"tools.ietf.org/html/rfcXXXX" in HTML.  Designating a "canonical" link 
to "http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfcXXXX.txt" seems to be OK.  So I 
think we have no problem here.
