I'll add another. It'd be good to look at Chat State Notifications.
Maybe we could replace one of the Last Activities? ;-)

BCPs are a fine tradition, but the worry is that, just as everyone
considers any RFC to be a standard, we'll have the same issue here.
Perhaps we could consider styling them differently - I'm put in mind
of the UK Government (and probably elsewhere, too) practise of "white
papers", "green papers", etc, and wondering whether we literally
follow that practise - so Informational documents would "go white"
when they went Active, and documents in the "working" phase of the
lifecycle - Experimental and Proposed - would be Green. It's probably
worth making Proposed blue, such that it's a "blueprint" of the
For the various "failure" states, I'd simply pick grey.
For Standards Track documents, I quite like the idea of Final
documents "going gold", and that just leaves Draft, which for no good
reason I'll pick Pink.
Retracted, Deferred, Rejected, Deprecated, Obsolete -> #7F7F7F
Active -> #FFFFFF
Experimental -> #CFEFCF
Proposed -> #AFCFFF
Draft -> #FFEFEF
Final -> #FFFFCF
These colours can live in the side margins of the document, so
there's a very clear visual indicator of the status of the document.
And this can be accomplished reasonably easily with a minor XSL and
CSS tweak, which I've attached in patch form.
