I think it's a bit disingenuous to blame the IETF. It's always easy to blame "them" (whoever them is) rather than "us" as it shifts the blame.
I've been implementing RFCs in the kernel and found issues with them too. However I went and told people in the IETF and worked with them and they fixed the issue. They also remarked about how O/S developers don't interact with the IETF. Yes it is a different culture (academic) but that is not an excuse.
We need the IETF - remember how there used to be Compuserve, AOL etc and all proprietary? The IETF is relevant as I'm sure nobody wants the Internet to stagnate.
So instead of blaming somebody, talk to them instead.
