I've made a (slow- and unreliably-hosted, soon-to-be-outdated) copy at 
http://canvex.lazyilluminati.com/wa1/ split into much smaller sections, 
which should cause less suffering to web browsers.

External links to any of those pages are likely to break when the 
original spec gets rearranged, since the filenames are based on the 
spec's auto-generated fragment identifiers, so it's not very useful for 
permanent pointers. But it's probably worthwhile when you just want to 
read one section at a time - I'm happy with the scripts being 
used/adapted for an official version (or for any other purpose).
