It is a first Working Draft, the status section says it.  It is not  
the final document.
When a first document is published it can be done by input of  
different documents and sources. It is usually good to do this for  
starting the work.

Another fact having a less variable (cvs versus TR) version of  
documents at work will help some of the communities who will read  
them. It will be easier to review these documents.
