That's linking to the Editor's Draft. "Working Groups and Interest 
Groups may make available Editor’s drafts. Editor’s drafts (ED) have no 
official standing whatsoever, and do not necessarily imply consensus of 
a Working Group or Interest Group, nor are their contents endorsed in 
any way by W3C."


A "First Public Working Draft" is a bit more formal, and it's the first 
step on the proper path to eventual publication as a W3C-endorsed 
Recommendation. "First Public Working Draft" doesn't mean that it's the 
first time the public gets to look at the work, but that it's the first 
official Working Draft.
