I agree with you: this format does not ease the reading.  This is however how it is done in, e.g. RFC 7567. This is more readable for someone aware of the activity in the working group (for someone familiar with the mentioned RFCs, seeing [RFC7567] is easier than [5]). It depends who is targeted by the draft. I think (hope?) that someone using these guidelines would have read RFC7567 first.
