All I'd add to this thread is "Internet Standard" seems vague. IETF surely makes them, but so does W3C, OASIS, and other standards bodies. I guess I'd prefer to see "IETF" mentioned to give better scope.

And in your specific text, I presume somewhere you mention the STD #, or RFC # or I-D name. Don't make the user try to figure out which standard you mean... :-)
