Look, it's actually really simple. RFC 1855 summarizes what is commonly
referred to as "the netiquette". Either you're referring to the
netiquette, then you're automatically implicitly referring to RFC 1855,
or you're not referring to the netiquette in the first place. Your
reluctance to accept the fact doesn't change anything about it.
