By the way, that reference is a MAY, not a MUST or even a SHOULD.  The second is in 4.4.1, where we say we take the <codec> element from the data model, but then we go ahead and define the element, anyway.

Therefore, I would propose we ask the RFC Editor move this reference from the Normative References to the Informative References, at which point this document will publish.
