The W3C icon at the top doesn't take me to http://www.w3.org/ like it
does on every other page in the W3C site; it takes me to
http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/wiki/Main_Page

I want the decision history of our work preserved. I'm surprised to
be fighting this battle repeatedly; first the link from /XML/ to
Sperberg-McQueen's decision record for XML, then the link from
the SPARQL pages to the DAWG and the SPARQL issues list, and
now on /RDF/ and /2004/OWL/ to their decision records.

It's fine for older work to get less prominent over time, but at
no point should the history be just chopped off completely.
