Abstract

   RFC documents contain a number of fixed elements such as the title    page header, standard boilerplates, and copyright/IPR statements.    This document describes them and introduces some updates to reflect    current usage and requirements of RFC publication.  In particular,    this updated structure is intended to communicate clearly the source    of RFC creation and review.  This document obsoletes RFC 5741, moving    detailed content to an IAB web page and preparing for more flexible    output formats.
