The bug that was posted explicitely mention IETF RFC because of that part.  
I'm not the one making policies in Debian, but it seems that this part makes 
the IETF RFCs "not-free-enough" for Debian.

That's why I'm asking if that file can be removed from the distribution,

See 199810 [1] for the discussion on the subject, if anyone cares.
