Are you claiming that the W3C is in the business of plagiarizing?

The SotD section need only refer to the working group that produced the
document. Authorship is not noted or tracked in W3C documents.

If Anne's work was submitted to and prepared in the context of the WebApps
WG, then it is a product of the WG, and there is no obligation to refer to
other, prior or variant versions.

Referring to an earlier, draft version published outside of the W3C process
does not serve any purpose nor is it required by the W3C Process.

If there is a question on the status of the Copyright declaration of the
material or its origin, then that should be taken up by the W3C Pubs team.
