Major issue here is that multi-page documents only have publication dates
on front pages, for example:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-WCAG20-20060427/conformance.html#conformance-reqs
has no pub date

Also publication date alone does not provide a clear indication of a
document being superseded or outdated, take for example
http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10/
