A simpler and more pragmatic approach is to include a statement in the boilerplate of

The copyright rules would prohibit anyone from removing this statement. If
someone pays $47 for a copy and then reads this statement, he is unlikely to
pay $47 again.
I suspect those who are inclined to pay $47 for an RFC are very
unlikely to read any boilerplate statements on the RFC.
While I could live with this, I fear adding more boilerplate just
creates more boilerplate and not much else.
