 [rwg] I support this as a reasonable compromise.

Given the extensive self contained list of changes already included
in this document I retract my assertions that this may not be the
best thing to do.

> Abstract:
> This document specifies the Internet's Transmission Control Protocol
> (TCP). TCP is an important transport layer protocol in the Internet
> stack, and has continuously evolved over decades of use and growth of
> the Internet. Over this time, a number of changes have been made to
> TCP as it was specified in RFC 793, though these have only been
> documented in a piecemeal fashion. This document collects and brings
> those changes together with the protocol specification from RFC 793.
> This document obsoletes RFC 793, as well as 879, 2873, 6093, 6429,
> 6528, and 6691 that updated parts of RFC 793. It updates RFC 1122,
> and should be considered as a replacement for the portions of that
> document dealing with TCP requirements. It updates RFC 5961 due to a
> small clarification in reset handling while in the SYN-RECEIVED
> state.
> 
> RFC EDITOR NOTE: If approved for publication as an RFC, this should
> be marked additionally as "STD: 7" and replace RFC 793 in that role.
