Respec has been fixed and spec-generator should now work as expected:
https://labs.w3.org/spec-generator/?type=respec&url=https%3A%2F%2Frawgit.com%2Fw3c%2Fpresentation-api%2FTR%2Findex.html%3FspecStatus%3DWD%3BshortName%3Dpresentation-api

To answer your question, you can pass the url above to pubrules [1] so
you don't have to host your document somewhere.
Note, if you are planning to publish with Echidna, don't forget to check 
the last checkbox on pubrules.
