I don't see how RFC 1885 can be meant.

RFC 1885 is one of the inspirations for the document foundation
netiquette page:

"These guidelines have been inspired by Mozilla Posting Guidelines,
with important additions from and

Original Netiquette guidelines:
Netiquette on Wikipedia:
Other useful information about the Netiquette:";

They are just guidelines, but ones which are generally considered good
practice on mailing lists. Please read them and try to follow them as
much as possible to keep discussions as pleasant and productive.

With respect to your question on top-vs-bottom-posting, the netiquette
gives a guideline, it is best to just follow that and use some tools
that facilitate the bottom-post/interspersed-style. And please refer to
the section on "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie". We all have out pet-peeves that
we would like to discuss and rehash indefinitely. Please resist the urge.
