When I inquired about adding an automatic validation check for this,
Peter Linss replied that there's actually no problem with using draft
spec links in rel="help". See

[22:09] <cvrebert> plinss: Gerard's feedback in
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-css-testsuite/2015Aug/0003.html
(and the lack of corresponding complaints from the bot on
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-test/pull/813 ) suggests there's a couple
things the bot ought to check that it currently isn't
[22:10] <cvrebert> plinss: (1) https://drafts.csswg.org shouldn't be
used in rel="help" links
[22:11] <plinss> actually, that’s not an issue, draft links are fine

Sincerely,
Chris
