Whatever we do, I think that the minimum to do is to allow someone following
http://www.w3.org/TR/xlink to see that there exists a 1.1 version of this
spec that is a REC

The way to make it visible could be

1) point www.w3.org/TR/xlink to www.w3.org/TR/xlink11
2) modify www.w3.org/TR/xlink to add a note saying that this spec has been
superseded by 1.1

I know that their is a lot of counter examples (XPath and XPath 2.0 for
example) but I can't see any example with minor version change (apart the
special case of xhtml11 and html)

The worst example being probably www.w3.org/TR/SVG which points to a Working
Draft...of the 2nd edition of 1.1


The current situation w.r.t to xlink isn't satisfactory

Regards,

Mohamed
