@klez sent a XKCD with the current stiuation.
If that's the case would anyone be interested in co-authoring an RFC?
I personally never wrote an RFC. The only standardization document I
wrote was BIP 179.
Having a RFC is the first steps for a general standardization.
Happy to collaborate. I am not experienced at it though. Only ever drafted, but not published at IETF, this Gopher over HTTPS document last year:
IIRC there is currently no Gopher working group at the IETF. We might want to first propose a charter for a Gopher working group.
