Since it was "a bit" annoying to me, I decided to take care of my eyes
and wrote a simple user style sheet, which makes the hyperlinks look
more line normal text:

@-moz-document url-prefix(http://www.rfc-ref.org/RFC-TEXTS/) {
 #mainDIV_obsah a {
  font: inherit !important;
  color: #333355 !important;
 }
}

Works in Firefox (and probably other Mozilla-based browsers). You can
use "Stylish" extension to apply this style.
