But I mean specifically the htmlized versions versus HTML produced by
xml2rfc or any XSLT conversion.

I like the pagination (yes, yes, I know, we as a community want to stop
paginating).  I like the way footers and headers are rendered.  I like
the metadata header at the top with the version history, alternative
formats links, and datatracker/nits/IPR/diffs links.

I accept that we'll eventually lose the pagination, but a) the
tools.ietf.org URIs are kinda useful now just because they are so
recognized, b) we should really not lose the metadata header.

I read these things in $PAGER as much as in $BROWSER.  I don't mind the
text.  I just don't want to lose all the value provided by the htmlize
tool right now.
