A down reference to an experimental RFC is not a problem. If you believe that we shouldn't be using recommendations from an experimental RFC, we should be doing IW 4.

That said, after hearing the comments at the mic today, I am now of the opinion that we don't need a *normative* reference to 6928. Having a reference to it for rationale is important, but it doesn't need to be normative.
