The syntax, {{Section x.y of RFC1234}} is, I guess, a feature of a newer
kramdown than I was running.  I thought in another document that it was a
typo, but I see that it generates XML that I didn't know was possible.

I've merged that PR, as it seems fine to me.
It doesn't change the format at all, it just provides a existing source of
tags.

Not sure what to do with the "definition of empty" comment, but
usually->often seems well taken.

So, cbor chairs, please give me 5 minutes to put PR:
  https://github.com/cbor-wg/cbor-magic-number/pull/5

on the screen, because I think that it deserves wider discussion.
