We can wait for these documents to become RFCs, but we can also dowref them to informational reference if we want to move that document forward. I will leave the AD to decide, and changes if needed can be done by the RFC -editor

Listing TLS 1.3 as normative when it explicitly doesn't affect/support it is weird. I don't see the need for this to not be an informational reference. 4492bis lists TLS 1.3 as informative as well, yet is more relevant to it. I think just downgrading the reference is fine.
