The IESG has received a request from the smime WG (smime) to consider the 
following document:

- 'Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) '
RFC 3852 as a Draft Standard

No technical issues were raised during the first Last Call.  However, the
Last Call failed to highlight two normative references to standards track
documents of lower maturity:  RFCs 3280 and 3281.

Speaking as a member of the IETF community I find the question confusing, 
considering that both documents were obsoleted (or just about to be obsoleted 
in case of RFC 3281). Shouldn't this be RFC 5280 and 

Both those documents are also not yet Draft Standards, so the question of 
down-reference is still the same.
