Anyone interested in doing this doesn't need to scrape -- the
base data has been available in RDF [1] for a while.  In fact, the
HTML /TR page is generated from the RDF [2].

[1] http://www.w3.org/2002/01/tr-automation/tr.rdf
[2] http://www.w3.org/2002/01/tr-automation/

I don't happen to know right now if the historical RDF data
is made available.  I don't imagine our Webmaster would
object too much to making it available if it isn't already.
