Maybe what could happen is a new version could be put in the same place
with a revised Status Of This Document bit, which can be done by the  
W3C staff, explaining the situation.  The W3C staff is officially  
responsible for the SOTD. If there is a consensus which includes the  
original author and a newer  document to point to that sounds like a  
reasonable thing to do.
