Hi Graham,

As Paul points out, the "This Version" links in these drafts were really
not intended to be resolvable yet, but instead to indicate where the drafts
will eventually be located once they are actually published by the W3C as
Last Call Working Drafts.

That said, I think it's also useful at this point to have stable addresses
for locations for static copies of the drafts you are being asked to
respond about. So I have gone ahead and updated all of the "This Version"
links to point to the addresses of those static copies.

The link you quote will be the stable URI of the eventual Last Call document IF the poll is successful.  The Last Call decision poll is only planned to last for one week and we were not expecting that we would need to publish the candidate documents with stable URIs just for the poll.
