 Looks like it's basically just errata from RFC 2445 (see page 166).  I'm
 sure the corrections can be implemented or verified pretty easily.  The
 burden may fall on the Free Association project as much as if not more
 so than on us.

Wondering why it is an entirely new RFC for a bunch (11 to be precise)
of errata. It could easily have been RFC 2445 spec 2 or something
similar.

That's the standard process for updating RFCs.  You'll notice that it's
been done the same way for RFC822 - 2822 and for DAV RFC2518 - 4918,
etc.

The last two digits of the original RFC number are maintained for
mnemonic reasons during the process, too.

Cheers,
Andrew.
