I can see the RFC-Editor's electronic copy.  Can't you?

I'm saying: call the RFC-Editor's electronic copy of RFC 20 _the_
canonical copy, promote it to Standard, and publish any errata we can
find (e.g., the author's name).

Later we can do an RFC 20bis if we really have to, but I'm hoping we
won't have to, mostly because there are better things to work on.
