I think the existing docs need to stay at the same URLs with the same
content, and these docs can then be republished at new 'NOTE' URLs with new
status sections. The status sections of the old docs could then be updated
by adding an informative note pointing at the new WG Note version of these
docs and stating they won't be advanced further to REC.

In other words, I think it not appropriate to change the published CRs (at
their existing URLs) to have a new status. The existing CRs should remain
in place as is (modulo adding a note as suggested above).
