The copyright is copied from
The restrictive clause is "However, this document itself may not be modified
in any way, such as by removing the copyright notice or references to the
Internet Society or other Internet organizations, except as needed for the
purpose of developing Internet standards in which case the procedures for
copyrights defined in the Internet Standards process must be followed, or as
required to translate it into languages other than English."
I think this clause apply only to the above link.
IMO, the test vectors in the Perl module tests are a derivative work of this
document and are covered with "derivative works that comment on or otherwise
explain it or assist in its implementation may be prepared, copied, published
and distributed, in whole or in part, without restriction of any kind,
provided that the above copyright notice and this paragraph are included on
all such copies and derivative works."
So I think this derivative work is DFSG even if the above link is not.
All the best
