I tried to convince Florian that updating to the correct modern
reference isn't a significant change, and is something that members of
this group should do for each other automatically, to make better
specs, but he wasn't buying it.

Anyway, just letting Bikeshed link to what it wants simplifies the
code *and* ensures that it'll automatically be current any time you
regen the spec.
