"until removed from this document..."

At line 229 of the Conneg document there is this statement:

"<div class="note">
      The standardization of the content-negotiation HTTP headers is the
purview of the IETF. A first proposal
      for an <a
      for Indicating and Negotiating Profiles in HTTP</a> [[PROF-IETF]]
is available but has not yet been submitted to the IETF. The
      current version of the IETF draft (-00) is expected to be
completely re-written in parallel work with this document and should
      be seen as a work-in-progress until this paragraph is removed from
this document.

My understanding is that once a document is published as a
Recommendation it cannot be modified, other than through a newly
chartered process. If that is the case, then there would not be a chance
to remove this note from the document if the IETF document is finalized
after Conneg is published.

DaveR and PlH - is my assumption here true? If so, then we need to
remove this statement before Conneg is advanced to CR.
