I don't see why not. It certainly seems the right place for it ! And it's
not like they were a corporate secret before.

I'd say so, yeah.

Definate -1 from here. I like plaintext. It also works just fine for RFCs. I
don't mind if the reference section (which should be the only place that
contains URIs ;) is written in a markup language to facilitate HTMLization,
or maybe just straight HTML, but I don't feel like escaping all those '>'s
in there.

However, if they can be converted to HTML automatically, based on minor
clues and/or whitespace-layout, fine by me ;) I wouldn't mind adding things
like paragraph markers and such, I just dont like to edit HTML newer than
1.1 ;P
