I would like to generalize this suggestion and to elevate it to a
requirement. Please consider the following text.

A W3C Recommendation must not have any normative references to works in
progress. A W3C Recommendation should not have non-normative references to
works in progress.

I did not find a like-worded requirement anywhere. I suspect that one exists
in some Member-only document. I would appreciate a confirmation or denial of
this suspicion.

Clearly, the proposed policy would affect many Working Groups. I could not,
however, discover the proper forum to raise the issue with the W3C at large.
I hope that Chris or another person can direct me.
