Thank you for your continued contributions!

> 
>  1) The boilerplate text at the beginning of the status section
>     has been clarified. It also now includes the required link
>     to the W3C Technical Reports page, so this link is not
>     required later in the status section.
> 
>  2) Member and Team Submissions SHOULD include a latest
>     version link (i.e., should resemble Rec track documents
>     as far as version links are concerned).

> The Comm Team is currently working on a proposal to clarify
> "latest version" link semantics, especially when more than
> one revision of a Recommendation has been published. The Comm
> Team expects to send a proposal to the Chairs in the near
