I am investigating whether W3C has a specific policy on it, but I'd like 
to chime in personally that I agree with all of the above comments, for 
all the same reasons.

In addition, it makes a more transparent trail for future 
spec-archeology, investigating why a particular decision was made.  In 
this spirit, I'd rather it were not a PDF, but an HTML or plain-text
