It's an informational RfC, so maybe you should try to contact
the authors. You probably know <http://dict.org> to find the
"dict community" if there is a "dict community", I've no idea.
If the dict authors and / or community like your ideas to

One thing you probably want to update is chapter 5 with the
dict: URL scheme, at the moment it's still based on RfC 1738,
use RfC 3986. For that part of the discussion you could use
the <uri.w3.org> mailing list.

IIRC dict has UTF-8 as default. If your updates would break
existing implementations you should really discuss it with the
Ietf mailing list
