If everyone listed at the upper right of the first page is going to be
an Editor, then adding "Ed." after their name is completely
superfluous and adds only clutter.

Traditionally, those listed at the upper right of the first page of an
RFC have been called "authors" in most cases, regardless of their
actual role, and those listed in an Acknowledgements section have
frequently been called "contributors" or the like. So I think it s
perfectly fine the way it is in regards to this non-issue.
