        Does this make Proteon non-standard? I was quoting from rfc1010, and I
must admit some confusion over the status of rfc's, I know that rfc stands for
Request For Comment, but everyone seems to treat them as standards, so what
are they? Standards or Drafts of proposed standards, and if they are drafts
what are the final standards (if any exist) called?
