I'm not sure, but I think if they say that the rfc is covered by
the gpl, that it might need to have some exception saying that
the name needs to be changed, which also seems to be compliant
with DFSG #4. Does the GPL allow such exceptions?
Could someone please advise me on what I should ask them to say?
