Hi Werner, other GnuPG folks.

doc/OpenPGP says:

   See RFC2440 for a description of OpenPGP.  We have an annotated version
   of this RFC online:

  Compatibility Notes
   GnuPG (>=1.0.3) is in compliance with RFC2440 despite these exceptions:

But the modern reference for OpenPGP (which GnuPG is compatible with) is
RFC 4880.  This document should probably be updated to reflect that
situation at least (though i haven't verified all the compatibility
notes, so i'm not sure what else should change).
