I agree. I don't know if spider refers to e.g. search engines or 
something more W3C-internal.

If it's search engines, I'd not be worried. They have a lot more to 
crawl than a few draft versions, and seem to be doing just fine.

If it's internal, then it always can be cached somehow, that's probably 
what Simon is referring to.
