No problem, I just thought I'd try a bit of early testing on the current

OK I'll change our drafts to match.

It seems quite common for specs that have been through many versions to
want to do something like this. Check for 'Latest.*[Vv]ersion'  ?

It's good for me (if not for echidna) not to see warnings:-)
If the 2003 URI is preferable to the 2005 one I'll change the
drafts to use that (the pages seem to be the same and at the present
time there are no translations) Or is the 2005/11 URI in fact newer
and a good link to use, and the test should not be warning?
