[CSSWG] Missing obsoletion notices on /TR

Some editor’s drafts like css3-content [1] have a big red "Obsoletion 
Notice" explaining that the module is not maintained and should not be 
used for implementation.

However the working draft on /TR [2] has no such indication. Apart from 
the date in 2003, it has nothing suggesting that it is any less current 
that another WD like css3-transforms.

This information is also available in the notes of the current-work page 
[3], but it really should be in the WDs themselves too (and preferably 
very visible, like ind the EDs). Last year I started using css3-box 
myself for implementing WeasyPrint before I was told on this list that I 
really shouldn’t.
