Wayne Carr suggested (on a DAP thread  ** ) another approach that seems appropriate for all the specifications listed in the CfC:

You can publish a 1/2 page Group Note that just says why the draft isn't being worked on anymore.  That has all the previous links to the TR and editor's draft.  So you don't have to go through rechecking the previous TR to republish that with the note because you aren't republishing the actual draft in what replaces the /TR/shorname/.  You're just publishing the note.

I suggest we take this approach for the documents listed in the CfC and thank Wayne for sharing this great suggestion.

This should also remove the need for the ugly disclaimer which Art and I expressed concern about ^^.

 Please consider the CfC amended to adopt this approach and comment accordingly if you have any concerns.

Please treat this document with caution and do not reference it or use it as the basis for implementation. The domain covered by this document is still within the scope of the Working Group as defined in its Charter. The Working Group may pursue an alternative API design that is based on the current Web browser security model.
