I have posted a short draft that proposes to open the "tools" version of
RFCs up, by allowing readers can annotate them. The goal is to provide
us with feedback and encourage discussion of these documents outside the
"walls" of the IETF.
If you will, this is another way to reach out to the broader community,
as this recent draft  suggests.
I would appreciate your comments!

Title: Requesting Comments: Enabling Readers to Annotate RFCs
Document date: 2016-06-25
Group: Individual Submission
RFCs were initially intended as, literally, requests for comments.
Since then, they have turned into standards documents, with a
peculiar process to report errors and a highly onerous process to
actually have the RFC modified/republished. Non-IETF participants
are typically unaware of any way to provide feedback to published
RFCs, other than direct email to the listed authors. This is very
different from the way many web specifications are developed today
and arguably leads to the value of published RFCs diminishing over
time. This document proposes an experiment to remedy this situation
through the deployment of web annotations.
Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
