Yes. I think that if we transition to the proposed approach, we can make 
that happen too. But I don't want it to be a blocker because I don't 
think that full browsability from the W3C side is required for v0. 
(There are also resource issues to consider, a spider going through all 
the history of a long and complex draft would likely use up 
non-negligible resources.)

Right, for the time being we can rely on existing stuff.
