For RFCs, there are two paths.  If the topic is general enough (and, of 
course, the advice is good enough), Russ Housley or I would consider 
sponsoring the document as a BCP.  If it's narrow or we're not 
interested for some reason (other than quality, of course), it could be 
an individual submission.  I encourage both paths.
