I think the "broader effort to update BCP 10" Barry was referring to is 
the nascent effort to deal with NomCom eligibility in general, 
especially for remote participants, not a process for pandemics. :-)

That said, while I agree that this document needn't be marked as 
updating RFC 8713 (it's pretty ephemeral; no need to document something 
in the text of the RFC for this), I do think it's reasonable to make it 
part of BCP 10. This document will be part of the NomCom process. When 
the broader update to BCP 10 arrives and obsoletes this document, it 
will be removed from BCP 10 and replaced by the broader update. That's 
the normal way we deal with BCPs.

But all of this is a teeny tiny point. Let's get the document approved, 
and the IESG can figure out the correct process buttons to push when 
we're done.
