FYI, there is some precedence for publishing Requirements docs as 
Recommendations (e.g. OWL UCs and Reqs) . If we want to go that route, 
it would presumably mean publishing a LC, skipping CR (not applicable 
for this spec) and then going to PR and REC. WDYT? Too much "make work"?

> The landscape document was just created to inform the standardisation process of what was considered best practice at the time. If it's a W3C requirement that it be published as a WG Note, then it should be published as is (i.e., I don't wanna do any work on it unless I really have to).

I don't feel real strongly here (and I will check with PLH on the 
publishing requirements). Publishing a WG Note does make a clear 
statement that work on the spec has stopped. We could also update the 
SotD which is quite old (e.g. still points to the appformats lists). 
[BTW, I would be willing to help with the edits.]
