But, the WHATWG HTML links to the editor's drafts and does not link to
the TR one. While documents on the REC-track should link to other
documents on the REC tracks, this doesn't apply to editor's draft, which
have no special status anyway. So, you can link to both versions in the
editor's draft if you prefer.
