Well, speaking for myself and not necessarily for the rest of the TAG, I 
think that would completely resolve the concern.

Well, the purpose of working drafts is to invite comments early in the 
process, when they are presumably easier to deal with than later.  So, in 
my opinion, it's a good thing in principle if drafts give some signal as 
to which areas are deemed stable and which are likely to change, exactly 
so that reviewers know to tread lightly when commenting on material that's 
not likely to survive.  I understand that in practice such distinctions 
aren't always easy to convey.

Anyway, I'm glad to hear that the plan in this case is to move to an http 
URI.  Thanks for the quick response.
