After IESG approval, they will stay "pending for normative references"
if any of those references are not yet approved.
It would be WRONG to copy pieces of text from other documents into these
GMPLS docs just so they can advance. If we have normative references,
then we better make sure and helpt to get those other I-Ds completed
and approved as well.
By the way, the RFC-Editor wants references split in normative and
informative these days, see :
which talks about this if you scroll down a bit.
