    This will likely result in your becoming very opinionated about the quality of the RFCs for some widely used protocols. :)

      This hits home. I implemented a parser/validator for an RFC way back (still using & maintaining it), and it was amazing just how many bugs and rabbit holes there were in a supposedly simple standard. Suffice it to say, I’m now utterly convinced that an RFC without a reference implementation/validator isn’t worth the bytes.
