[I-D.rfc-editor-rfc2223bis] (one of the less unattractive ones)
things cause formatting problems, violate almost every known
style manual about forms for symbolic references, and so on. If
our tools permitted us to use the forms that are recommended in
the rest of the world, such as "[Nart07a]" for the above, it
would be different. But they don't permit doing so conveniently.
I wrote an xsl transform that does this.
xml2rfc mydoc.xml mydoc-tmp.xml
xsltproc strip-id-references.xsl mydoc-tmp.xml > mydoc-tmp2.xml
xml2rfc mydoc-tmp2.xml mydoc.txt
(Not to say that this is "convenient", but it's at least possible)
