Answer

A Request For Comments (RFC) document defines a protocol or policy used on the Internet. An RFC can be submitted by anyone. Eventually, if it gains enough interest, it may evolve into an Internet Standard ( see FAQ XXX). Each RFC is designated by an RFC number. Once published, an RFC never changes. Modifications to an original RFC are assigned a new RFC number.
