The Internet Archive has a project where they grab everything that is 
referenced by Wikipedia and patch the Wikipedia links to point to their copy 
when the original goes offline.

I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to convince them to grab a copy of anything a 
draft or RFC links to.  I doubt if we want them patching RFCs.  Maybe an extra 
parallel document that could be linked to by the RFC page.
