I don't think we should be switching around the meaning of those
spec/latest/ links.  Let's keep those pointing at the latest draft
from this group.  One reason is people may use the json-ld.org link vs
w3.org one and then when we change the meaning of those links, they
would be pointing at the wrong document.

How about this: On the website navbar dropdown, add a group at the top
called "Recommendations" that links to the latest w3.org docs and
change the text "Latest" to "Latest Draft" (and still use spec/latest/
for the link).  Then on the spec/ page, for each doc with official
recommended specs, add another line with links to each recommedation
doc, and change the "Links to JSON-LD specifications" text to "Links
to JSON-LD drafts".
