It seems likely that Notes will confuse me to the end of my days.

My understanding of pubrules is that a WG-NOTE needs to have a Previous 
Version. The NG checker agrees with me (but then again, I wrote it so...).

For your document it would seem to me that you ought to be using the 
FPWD-NOTE status. In that case, there is indeed a bug that it requires a 
Previous Version  that's something I can fix.

But before I fix anything I'd like to make sure that it needs to be 
fixed only for FPWD-NOTE and not WG-NOTE.
