How would you convince the upstream to do that?  I am affected by this issue, 
but I don't see how I could get the upstream to listen to this kind of issue.  
If you consider their interests, removing the RFC only diminishes the overall 
value of their package (minimally, but still) while seemingly gaining nothing 
at all in return.
