For the record, this is seriously awesome and kind of fun... Stephen
may be on the way to "gamify" RFC privacy/PPM reviews. ::)

One practical question: My first draw was RFC 963 "SOME PROBLEMS WITH
THE SPECIFICATION OF THE MILITARY STANDARD INTERNET PROTOCOL" from 1985.

Since the first year I remember there being things called "years" was
1982, I'm thinking that a review of this might not be that useful, no?

So, is there a quick rubric for RFCs to review that might be
particularly useful? E.g., should we focus on more recent ones?

best, Joe
