I'm trying to find the link to the W3C System Status page [1] on
the new site.  Maybe the fact that [1] is suffering bit-rot is an
acceptable reason for it not being easy to find anymore, but
I'd really like to see that page maintained.   This had previously
been linked directly from the home page.  It doesn't need to be
one click from the home page but the path shouldn't be hard to guess.

   [1] http://www.w3.org/2003/08/system-status

What I did:

1. Start at home page, scan visually for keywords suggesting systems info

2. Decide maybe "About W3C" is a step closer, follow that link and scan
   for keywords suggesting systems info.

3. Maybe "Help and FAQ" is the next step?   Follow that link.

4. Under "Ask the Webmaster" might be a place to have a link to
   "W3C services status".
5. Resort to Site Map, search on that page for "system" or "status".

6. Give up, use the search box with the text "system status".  success.
