If we did that Apple would have a field day opening PAGs :)

I think that this ties in with the issue that when you find yourself on a dated TR version, nothing tells you if it's the latest and greatest or not. Ideally, every W3C specification should be published with a small bit of JS that asks if it's the latest and very obviously flags itself as obsolete if it is not. That would work nicely for copied documents as well.
