Thanks -- that appears similar to a cr.yp.to link, maybe somewhat worse
since it doesn't mention an author and the content appears to change
frequently and I can't find links to a stable version of the document.
I'll use it and let Stephen and/or the RFC editor figure out how to
handle this.  I agree with ianG that the world has changed here, and it
should be fine to use URLs like this when there isn't any better
alternative available.
