FWIW, this position is consistent with a recent IESG decision that
initial versions of IANA-maintained MIB modules (which are a special
type of registry) shall be published in an RFC, but shall be
accompanied by a normative reference to the actual IANA registry URL
and a note stating that the version maintained in that registry is
the definitive one.
