NCSA no longer hosting the CGI spec? RFC3875 matches implementations?

Somebody just sent mail to notify me that lots
of links on http://www.w3.org/CGI/ are

The wikipedia community does a pretty good job
of keeping links up-to-date, so I looked
at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Gateway_Interface ,
but it also says "The NCSA team wrote the specification, and NCSA still
hosts it at its original location."
with a link to http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/cgi/

But I can't get an IP address for hoohoo:

> host hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu
Host hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu.csail.mit.edu not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

I see there's an RFC for CGI 1.1

In the wikipedia talk page, there's some question as to
whether it's sufficiently endorsed by implementors to
replace the NCSA docs.

Any opinions?
