The real world of modern spec use and authoring is no longer tightly tied
to reaching REC (or even CR or PR), and the current situation of outdated
specs with no warnings, misleadingly presented as if they represent modern
practice, repeatedly leads to both user and implementer confusion.

I don't know if this is the right thing to do for all of the listed specs,
but in general this is important to fix.
