I suggest to call them in such a way that RFC 1234 is indexed as 
IRFC.1234.01 with 01 being a "top level index" for the IETF RFC 
Editor. And other numbering or naming system with 02, 03, etc. TLIs. 
A system everyone can understand.

This way systems like MediaWiki should default IRFC 1234.01 to the 
RFC Editor site, while they should stay neutral to entries like 

- WIKIRFC could get the 00 TLI as another good mnemonic. Its IRFCs 
would document the system?
- IRFC 0.nn in each TLI could be the list of IRFC documented in that 
TLI after removing the deprecated and historic ones.

IRFC 1234.01 could be read as "Indexed RFC 1234 01" in order to avoid 
confusion. In the HomeRoot an IRFC TLD could be listed permitting to 
access the IRFC 1234.01 as http://1234.01.irfc".

My two cents.
