Uh, no... Really not.

Read some of the earliest standards documents and you'll find that they are
pretty sloppy, but, the community back then (predecessor to NOGs) was small
enough that people could develop and deploy workarounds and feed those
resolutions into superseding RFCs. Today, there are many more operators
and IETF has become a much larger and more complex set of bodies as
well.
