correct.  That is why we replaced the content at [2,3] with an
intermediate page that cites the new document (as well as
the old, for historical purposes).

You're referring to the way the citation is labelled on the
intermediate page, correct?   I believe we can refer to that
URI any way we wish, whereas the title page of the
specification itself must use the term "Latest version".

I'd be OK with "Last version".  I'll ask our Head of Communications
for precedents and/or preference.
