Applying my Karl decoder ring I get "We could use JavaScript to detect that the publication date is n days in the past for a status that isn't Rec or something similar, and based on that change the style." Correct?

I don't dislike the idea and it's certainly easy enough to implement, but how does a draft know that it's the latest in a line? If it's not the latest in a line (say it's WD2 from five years ago that has actively been replaced by WDs 3-5, LCs 1-7, and we're now in CR) it should probably not change its style but perhaps prominently indicate that it's not the latest version.

I'm all for that but I don't think we have that metadata available at this point.
