You bring up a good point. I have been assuming that -
since IDs can be submitted in multiple formats - that the
additional formats would also become part of the RFC library
I just took a quick peek at the RFCs and there does not
appear to be a single example of a version that is not in
text format. I don't know if that is because they are not
stored in the same place, or they are not carried forward as
part of the publishing process.
The number is not huge, but some RFCs have, in fact, been
published formally in PS and/or PDF as well as in ASCII (and I'm
on the hook for another one... something else in a too-long
queue). See RFC 3550 and 3551 for recent standards-track
examples and RFC 1119 for an a Full Standard example that is
legendary in some parts of the community for incomprehensibility
if one has only the ASCII text and diagrams.
