I honestly feel that that would be irresponsible. It's bad enough that we 
have out of date drafts on the TR/ page; having out of date drafts on 
dev.w3.org without warning is even worse.

find it ludicrous that you would make such demands. These requests are 
making me seriously reconsider how I provide editor's drafts to the 
working group.
