I might do that as well. I do mirror the stuff.

The question is still open - do people think packaging

A. the IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) stuff - stuff like MIME  
types, port numbers, bootp options, telnet options, and so on

B. Some RFCs (see above for what might be a good selection)

would be a good idea? I'm quite willing to do it, *if* people want to have  

I could also do something about draft (not yet published) RFCs, but I  
don't think that would be a good idea.
