I don't see why we could not have links between the two documents, if they're helpful.  Is it a W3C formatting requirement, or a logistical / presentation requirement?

Have they been helpful so far?  To my knowledge, we have not yet started associating the informal constraints in the DM with their formalizations in the FM, but this still seems like a worthwhile thing to do.

I would also think that having numbers to refer to the constraints will be helpful in managing external issues raised against them.  (since the numbers should be persistent even if the section numbers change)

It seems like the only obvious options are keep them, find  way to "filter" them out of the published draft, or delete them and not bother with this in the future.  If they're not helpful, then they should go.  If they're helpful, then why not keep them in the working drafts.
