So , IMHO, the IETF urgency is today the other way around:
incorporating into RFC standards, practices or tables authoritatively
written or thought in another language than English, or in English
using normative non-ASCII art drafts or using term in a meaning
foreign to the IETF.
If all RFCs are written in English, basically so that there is at most
one additional language in which one must be fluent to understand and
implement the protocols described therein, wouldn't it defeat the
purpose to have normative references written in other languages?
