I recommend that we change all CSS2 links from
   http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/*
to
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-CSS2-20080411/*

FWIW, I think that changing a stable REC URL, which probably has many 
links, to a WD is a terrible idea.  They should use the shortname 
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS21/ instead of overwriting 
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/.
