I suggest that -00 be just rfc4880 be just redo in modern XML.
We did that for RFC8514 (DHCPv6bis).
So, where I marked {PERIOD} above.  Then let -01 be all the rest.

If you are using markdown, I also suggest that you start every new sentence
on a newline, as that makes the git diff process much easier.
