1) There is nothing remotely close to "universal agreement that [RFC
2050] not relevant.
2) The reference is actually to the /values expressed in RFC 2050/ not
to the entirety of the text of the RFC.

1) Why has your mind changed since you and Jason and I wrote this policy text?
2) I take the values expressed in RFC 2050 to be summarized quite
nicely as goals in the introduction:

   Internet address space is distributed according to the following
   three goals:

   1) Conservation: Fair distribution of globally unique Internet address
   space according to the operational needs of the end-users and Internet
   Service Providers operating networks using this address space.
   Prevention of stockpiling in order to maximize the lifetime of the
   Internet address space.

   2) Routability: Distribution of globally unique Internet addresses
   in a hierarchical manner, permitting the routing scalability of
   the addresses. This scalability is necessary to ensure proper
   operation of Internet routing, although it must be stressed that
   routability is in no way guaranteed with the allocation or
   assignment of IPv4 addresses.

   3) Registration: Provision of a public registry documenting address
   space allocation and assignment.  This is necessary to ensure
   uniqueness and to provide information for Internet trouble shooting
   at all levels.

Which of those goals/values do you believe to be no longer relevant to
Internet number stewardship and why?
