Is there something in the RFC that suggests that a byte order other than
'network order' is possible/acceptable there?

No. The RFC states nothing at all about byte- or bitorder. That is why
the RFC is ambigious at this point.

RFC 791 (IPv4) Appendix B does give instructions on byte ordering for all IPv4 headers and data, and RFC 791 is listed in the References for RFC 3378. I noticed this is only Informational, not a Standards track document, so I guess the non-interoperable implementations kind of go with the territory.
