I can't see any reason to object to using this.

But I would object to publishing "every" update to an editor's draft as the new /TR draft.

Editor's drafts need to be readily available for a variety of stakeholders.

/TR drafts should be updated "when there have been significant changes to the previous published document that would benefit from review beyond the Working Group" - http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/#revised-wd

I.e. TR drafts should have a bit more stability than is required for an editor's draft. In many cases it makes a lot of sense to check in each little change separately to an editor's draft, in order to get good logging of what actually changed. Whereas a TR draft should be able to sum up the differences between it and a previous version (with a significant change) in a few lines.
