Interesting. I guess the above documents that the praxis back then was 
in line with (my interpretation of) what Liam says now: A working draft 
under /TR can conform to itself. But when the working draft becomes a 
Recommendation, then it must conform to a Recommendation - where that 
Recommendaiton could be to the very document itself.
