To make life more compilcated .... the version of the draft on github is
not the official draft version; the HTML version on tools.ietf.org is
not the official draft version, but an unofficial reformatting; the
eventual target for JSEP is an RFC, which doesn't offer semantic anchors
at all (AFAIK).

I think the third option comes closest to doing what we want - we have
to generate the mapping table from the github version, and point into
the published draft version.

Methodologies aren't completely aligned.

Surveillance is pervasive. Go Dark.
