First, I noticed that the W3C Link Checker complains about a duplicate 
anchor "abstract" in all frozen drafts.

Then , I noticed that there are several links from FLD, BLD, and DTB to 
generic URIs for other W3C specifications.  the links should be to 
specific versions of the specifications, because fragments of documents 
may change in future versions and you want to refer to a specific 
version of this other specification.

BLD and DTB contain broken links other than of the form below, e.g., BLD 
contains a broken link to the owl reference and DTB contains several 
broken links to the XQuery functions specification.

Finally, concerning errors of the following kind:

> = http://www.w3.org/2007/rif
> =     What to do: There are broken fragments which must be fixed.

> = 
> =     Broken fragments and their line numbers: They need to be fixed!
> =         iri: 4002 
> 
> The last of these can be ignored.

Why can these be ignored?
there is no human-readable content there, so humans should not be led 
there.  I would argue that such links should be removed, e.g., using the 
<nowiki> tags.

Best, Jos
