So what is the problem you believe exists?

\r doesn't show up in other documents when they are downloaded,
here are two random examples:

$ wget
$ od -c draft-housley-mass-sec-review-00.txt | head -1
0000000   \n  \n   N   e   t   w   o   r   k       W   o   r   k   i   n

$ wget
$ od -c rfc3597.txt | head -1
0000000   \n  \n  \n  \n  \n  \n   N   e   t   w   o   r   k       W   o

and here's one from your own server:

$ wget
$ od -c draft-crocker-abnf-rfc2234bis-00.txt | grep '\\r'
$ od -c draft-crocker-abnf-rfc2234bis-00.txt | head -1
0000000   \n  \n  \n  \n   N   e   t   w   o   r   k       W   o   r   k
