Not ever an RFC, not even an internet draft

Not ever an RFC, not even an internet draft

"There is a draft RFC available which describes this protocol in detail."

Terminology is pretty important when it comes to IETF documents, and the word "Draft" can lead to confusion.
No, there is no Plan 9 RFC, it doesn't look like there will be one, and there certainly is not an RFC that has advanced to the "Draft Standard" phase. There is not even an "Internet Draft" any more, since it expired. And the Internet Draft that was submitted explicitely stated that

"This document is an Internet-Draft and is NOT offered in accordance with Section 10 of RFC 2026, and the author does not provide the IETF with any rights other than to publish as an Internet-Draft."

I've never seen anything like that - why publish an internet draft that states up front that you aren't playing by the rules and you don't want to procede?
