Thanks tom. ^_^ I was so surprised to see the info in the talk page. When we first talked about landuse=civic a few months ago, I wanted to make an RFC page, but, honestly, the guidelines didn't really show me how to actually _make the page_ , and while I'm really good with a screwdriver or photoshop, wiki markup and conventions are new, so I couldn't.   This time I figured it out. 

Now I can follow the guidelines better by presenting RFC pages for future ideas.
