is there an RFC for public ipv4 ranges? I understand RFC 1918 is for private ipv4 ranges

I would look into RFC6890, which lists the "Special Purpose Addresses". Everything not on that list can be considered public addresses.

After a very fast check on http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc-index.html  I find this:

RFC 1366 Guidelines for Management of IP Address Space

and subsequent RFC that obsolete one another
