Good idea. 

An immediate benefit would be rationalising the creation of RFCs, and
this is exactly the kind of material that could be usefully
semantically indexed.

Hmm, but how much of rfc2629 is actually spec-specific? There's a fair
bit of overlap with existing XHTML constructs (like lists) and things
for which there are already microformat representations like hCard. 
There does also seem to be overlap with biblio vocabs like DC and
PRISM, maybe some of this could be factored out into more
general-purpose profiles..?

I don't know, through RDF lenses it wouldn't matter too much if hSpec
did redundantly duplicate terms found in other microformats,
equivalents could be resolved later. What does the microformat style
guide say on this?
