My personal opinion is that this is going to be published as an
RFC, and if all we need is a paragraph extracted from the other
document to describe the issue, then we should do that rather
than add a citation (dependency).  This keeps the RFC self-contained,
and removes the issue of people not being able to find the
other document 20 years from now, or misunderstanding the context
of that document as some kind of approved supplement to the RFC.

Just my < $0.02 :).
