Ajaxian should edit that entry to something like: "there is an editors
draft in the making" and then presented the goals/objective of the

Good to get more notice on the API, but saying things like "Arun is a
great guy" in that same entry indicates impartiality.

I mentioned before that "2006" URI has a link to the latest:
| Latest public version:

That page has a previous draft (Robin's?)

That latest version:-
| File Upload
| W3C Working Draft 18 October 2006

AISB, the "2006" uri returns the latest "editors draft" and the
"Latest public version" at "/TR/file-upload/" has old content.

That should be fixed so that the latest version does truly point to
the latest version.

I do not know the rules for how W3C usually publishes things, but it
is confusing to have the "latest" uri having old content and the
"2006" uri having the actual up-to-date editors draft. At the very
least, the link to the latest version ought to return the latest
up-to-date version.
