Another example: the websocket protocol ref in

   http://dev.w3.org/html5/websockets/

has a broken author list and to the day still refers to the Internet Draft.

The boilerplate still refers to a WhatWG copy of the spec that has been 
obsolete for over 17 months; that problem has been reported in

   https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=13700

in August 2011 and still remains unfixed in the Editor's copy.
