If the editors decide they want to make a -00 from rfc4880 itself, and
make -01 include the other stuff mentioned above, that seems reasonable
to me.  crypto-refresh.md at git commit
9349ef2c0afe128e35a5172e9d41ed17619ca790 in the "step-by-step" branch on
https://gitlab.com/openpgp-wg/rfc4880bis would be a reasonable
candidate for a source for that version.

yep, we're already doing that in the "simplifying-diffs" branch over at
https://gitlab.com/openpgp-wg/rfc4880bis

I agree that it makes the git diff much clearer, particularly for
multi-sentence paragraphs where changes show up in the beginning or
middle.

the "reflow" script in the git repo makes a number of assumptions about
an idiomatic markdown source -- if those assumptions are followed, then
it does adopt this newline-per-sentence approach.
