Right.  We're an anarchy ;)

My point was that the "proposed standard/standard/BCP" status has more
weight behind it than the mere "informational" status that RFC1814
currently has.  I'm sure that digging through the RFC index, we can
find any number of examples of bad ideas flagged as "informational".

Also, although ARIN has said that they'll follow RFC2050, I don't
see any transitivity to imply 1814 as well...
