look, no one likes rcynic.  but it has carried us for a decade now, so i
treat it with respect.  it will take us another decade to completely get
rid of it.  remember, it took me eight years to get a constant changed
from 4k to 16k (RFC 8654).  one of the things the pandemic should be
teaching us is patience.

we are stewards of the internet.  we do not intentionally break it.  we
do that enough accidentally.  luckily, we can turn preventing the latter
into a career :).

so let us figure out the safe path to move forward, document it, and
start moving down it.  but the goal is some time away.  and likely, by
the time it is close, we will be discussing how to get rid of RRDP.
