What's the point of another URN in addition to urn:ietf:rfc:2648 ?

The ISSN idea is fine if this gets RFCs cataloged in places where
they are not available at the moment.  

For the "info-handles" and DOI ideas I don't understand why the 
IETF would wish to spend money for "yet another number" for RFCs.
See Henning's and Marshall's articles, $1500 per year.  I'm not
at all convinced that this is a good idea.
