Typically normative references are things that a document depends on  
for understanding and/or implementation.  The only references to RFC  
4302 & 4303 are to say that the only real way to secure a connection  
is using IPsec, and since this document deals with the absence of  
them, I agree with Ted, these should be informative references.
