You might want to modify RFCs because a couple of pages could make a nice
insert in your own manual. Or you're drafting a successor to an RFC. Or
you're basing a protocol on one described in an RFC.
DFSG already allows there to be a term such as "You may distribute a
modified form of the RFC822 document, but you may not call it RFC822 if it's
been modified." To me, that seems sufficient.
