It's a useful baseline. Also, I find the new HTML borderline unreadable.  Mostly that comes down to line length.

I do prefer HTML, but I am happier with things like https://quicwg.org/base-drafts/draft-ietf-quic-transport.html or https://httpwg.org/http-extensions/draft-ietf-httpbis-header-structure.html or https://mnot.github.io/I-D/how-did-that-get-into-the-repo/
