Presumably that would have to be part of the communication between a WG and the Systems Team when a publication request goes in.

Resurrecting that information for everything in /TR could be a challenge, hence my concern that the cost could be non-trivial even if it's obvious that there's significant benefit.

That’s what I meant by a header or footer — a floating hoojum that says “outdated/obsoleted by xxxx on yyyy”

The harder question is where to find the data (xxxx and yyyy), I suspect
