Build a RACI (or RASCI) for Scrum - as a snapshot in an appendix of the Scrum Guide?
Do you see any value in a one-page RACI addition to the Scrum Guide?
I've been learning all about Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), and proposed the need for a RACI. It was actually on their list for 4.0 considerations, which was nice to know. SAFe has additional roles and teams identified at the program and portfolio levels.
Also, I had weeks of agile-based training thru ThoughtWorks back in 2010, and their training materials had so many responsibilities embedded throughout that I saw value in creating my own RACI.

Also SAFe is not Scrum, its a super-set (see bottom-most elements of the big SAFe diagram) but it also modifies how the Scrum framework is used. Scrum is also a lightweight framework, so adding a RACI is not really adding much value IMHO.

I don't agree.
It's difficult for me to understand why I feel such disagreement with the suggestion. Perhaps because RACI is, by definition, a way of predefining (and often segregating) delivery/implementation from decision-making and therefore the model is a barrier to self-organization. (This is an incomplete argument, I know, but I would not support the inclusion of RACI in the Scrum Guide nor in a Scrum environment.
