I think that is absolutely correct for technical specs. In the
of the IPR process documents, which Spencer raised, it may well be that
the correct citation should be the latest version.
Indeed, using the BCP or STD number is really a way of providing an automated
mechanism for resolving the citation "The latest version of ...".
That is even useful for technical specs, but only sometimes.
