I saw the announcement for the new RFC (7159). For the record, although 
I understand the basic idea behind the policy that RFCs are never 
changed, I think it would have been much wiser to just make the change 
in place.

In the long run (in this case, my guess would be that this means more 
than one week), the implications would have been much smaller than 
having to live with two virtually identical RFCs with numbers differing 
only by 1 for a long time.

Regards,   Martin.

P.S.: Needless to say that the best would have to be to avoid the 
mistake in the first place.

P.P.S.: W3C has a policy for very limited in-place fixes
(http://www.w3.org/2003/01/republishing/), but it doesn't include this case.
