AND, people often end up finding a linking NOT to the whole document, but to a section inside that document and do not see the warning at the top of the document. There is a need for a mechanism which shows the warning about a more up-to-date document no matter how one arrives at the document in question.

Thanks to the magic of CSS, we have ha such a mechanism, which has been used in documents published on /TR for several years now.

I still think this is a non-issue.
