No RFC's are binding. Some of them are a means of publishing how things
are done, some are documents that reflect Best Current Practices within
the Internet community, and some are considered Standards. You can ignore
them if you wish but since they do reflect various levels of community
consensus you will find that people won't co-operate with you. That's not
exactly "binding" though.
