Except copyright, trademark, patent issues, you can publish anything you want.

For copyright issues, if you "just change [...] two points", the easiest way is to 
wrote that your specification do not differ from IETF RFC XXXX except for the 
sentence xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx replaced by yyyyyyyyyyyyy.
For trademark issues, see relevant RFC (I guess you should not use "IETF" or 
"RFC" in your specification's title)
For patent issues, see relevant RFC.
