You can publish a 1/2 page Group Note that just says why the draft isn't being worked on anymore.  That has all the previous links to the TR and editor's draft.  So you don't have to go through rechecking the previous TR to republish that with the note because you aren't republishing the actual draft in what replaces the /TR/shorname/.  You're just publishing the note.

Wayne - thanks for the pointer. This makes it *very clear* the spec is obsoleted, and should also simplify the publishing process.

Frederick - I suggest we try this shortcut for updating /TR/shortname for the group's shelved documents, if no concerns.

Thanks,
