From a random RFC: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2060.txt

"Distribution of this memo is unlimited."

With RFCs available to anyone with a web browser, it's absurd to say
they're non-free, and a waste of time removing them from Debian.

If people need that spelled out in a contract, then spell it out in a
way that can't be misconstrued.
