RFCs can be issued by anyone who feels like it. It's my understanding that 
an RFC must be championed by someone to go anywhere, and just because an 
RFC is issued (and championed) it doesn't mean it'll make it in.

Like the IETF RFCs, some are preliminary, some are informational, and some 
are experimental.
