Agree.  Perhaps there could multiple optional-to-implement formats - ASCII
Armor, JSON, pure base64, XML (*ugh*), etc - each specified separately.

4880 section 6 has a very detailed description of the ASCII format - should
that be pulled out into a separate document and just referenced in the core

It could, but that actually *adds* complexity instead of reducing it.

IMHO it's much nicer, from an implementation point of view, to have
everything in one document instead of having to go off and reference a
dozen or more documents.

If you don't want to implement section 6 in your implementation then
just skip section 6.
