Bad idea. Not only it makes the RFC process depend on an external
organization, but it often fails for the reasons explained by the
OP. For instance, googling Sieve does not bring back RFC 5228...
Submitting 'sieve' in the document search form on http://tools.ietf.org/html
returns 3028 as the first result, and a link to the htmlized 3028 which notes
that it has been obsoleted by 5228. (I'm surprised that the search results
doesn't already include 5228, too, but I expect they will fairly soon).
