1 seems an overkill and would hurt the Matrix usability quite badly. 2
is suggested by the Process Document anyway:
"However, publication of a technical report at one maturity level does
not guarantee that it will advance to the next. Some technical reports
may be dropped as active work or may be subsumed by other technical
reports. If, at any maturity level of the Recommendation track, work on
a technical report ceases (e.g., because a Working Group or Activity
closes, or because the work is subsumed by another technical report),
the technical report should be published as a W3C Note and the status
section should include the rationale."

If only it was indeed applied...

[The Matrix evolution probably belongs to www-qa, BTW]
