This would be the job of the publishing system, not the notifier. The 
new publication system, Echidna, does check that the Process used is 
2014 and doesn't accept 2005 documents. Unfortunately, there is no plan 
to upgrade the old system, ie the one that covers the 2005 process. We 
have a long list of TODOs at the moment and many would be higher than 
this to be honest. It's an unfortunate loophole.

Charters and proposed charters are public per [1] and this has been the 
case for a while now. I don't believe we made that retroactive however. 
If you found a recent charter that wasn't public then it was a bug on 
our part.
