Perhaps we should add the concept of a "concurrent work" section (and concurrent work editor)? 

The main difference I see between the usage of previous editors in the W3C's past and the current situation, is that in the past, when an editor was replaced it was because the previous editor was no longer working on the spec. In the current situation, we now have editors leaving the W3C, but wishing to continue to edit their spec elsewhere. The W3C then replaces editors, but then we have parallel documents and parallel editors.
