Sadly, it was probably quicker to take the pointless pain (of
arm wrestling xml2rfc's ideas of abnf and alignment) rather
than argue more against this pointless change. So I moved the
figure-text precisely 3 characters to the right. (It was not
hard though, but only because I got lucky in discovering that
a line of whitespace before the text worked somehow.)

Anyway -09 is posted with that pointless change. But also
with the other all very worthwhile changes Donald suggested.

S.

PS: Yes, I really do think we ought not foist this kind of
nonsense on authors.
