In that case this link should appear in the public draft somewhere,
preferably very conspicuously.

The public draft does have a link to "The Latest Version", but that
"Latest" version is not http://dev.w3.org/csswg/. We can't expect
people to know that this page exists (*especially* if another page is
claimed to be "Latest").
