For citation purposes: yes, absolutely. ASCII-format RFCs are
pre-formatted with linefeeds and pagenumbers. Once released, RFCs are
not changeable (instad, one issues a brand new RFC).
Its decades ago now, but I think even the DoD Protocol Handbooks
(three _very_ large, white, phonebook-style volumes) had the original
RFC page-numbering above the DoD-protocol-handbook page number.
