goal is to allow code to be allowed in Open Source Software, then
requiring a maximally compatible OSS license for code makes sense.
But requiring for random protocol text, especially if this is going to
make reuse of older RFC's text, seems to not be a great cost/benefit
As a point of information, this was raised as an issue in the IPR WG
because of cases where it makes more sense to recycle text extracts
from RFCs in product documentation than to paraphrase the RFC. The
consensus was to cover it in 5378. The only glitch is that we forgot
to insert a transition rule for old stuff.
