The DMARC spec was originally designed by folks outside of IETF, and the
current RFC was a "cleaned up" and modified into RFC format version of that
spec, to match current practice.
There was also concern with the spec's impact on various indirect email.

Hence, informational and independent submission.

This is somewhat spelled out in the working group charter:
