I don’t understand the current situation any more than you, but Henrik did leave us this gem:

$ curl

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<reference anchor="I-D.spaghetti-sidrops-rpki-rsc">
      <title>RPKI Signed Checklists</title>
      <author fullname="Job Snijders">
      <date month="February" day="11" year="2021" />
	 <t>   This document defines a Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) profile
   for a general purpose listing of checksums (a &#39;checklist&#39;), for use
   with the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI).  The objective is
   to allow an attestation, in the form of a listing of one or more
   checksums of arbitrary digital objects (files), to be signed &quot;with
   resources&quot;, and for validation to provide a means to confirm a
   specific Internet Resource Holder produced the signed checklist.  The
   profile is intended to provide for the signing of a checksum listing
   with an arbitrary set of Internet Number Resources.

   <format type="TXT" target="" />

(The value of /reference/format/@target in this is, er, suboptimal; Martin Thomson has pointed out [1] that you can delete the whole <format target=…> thing and xml2rfc will insert something sensible instead, which you can further control via xml2rfc options.  kramdown-rfc environment variable for that: KRAMDOWN_NO_TARGETS)
