Well, it's a bit of clerical work, but I have found that the pattern I 
used with metadataInURI  and other similar findings works just fine. Using 
that example, I posted the following files at the time the last draft was 

Latest Version:  http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/doc/metaDataInURI-31  (html)
This Version: 
XML: http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/doc/metaDataInURI-31-20060609.xml

I also updated the previous version list in the front matter to list all 
previous dated drafts.  Is there a reason that we shouldn't just use this 
pattern when releasing new drafts for review?  I think it's exactly 
consistent with the advice promoted in Raman's draft finding on generic 
resources.  FWIW:  I find it particularly important to have stable dated 
copies of drafts put up for review, so that comment emails can refer to 
the draft actually commented on.  Two years down the road, it's difficult 
to evaluate a comment if the draft linked from the email has since been

This whole note is exceeeeeeeedingly ironic.  We have regularly had
problems getting the right version of the versioning finding from URI
datespace. I *WAS* thinking of trying to come up with a very funny
response somehow relating the version of the document and the uri to the
fact that the newer version removed more of the "xml-centric" nature,
but I couldn't quite connect the dots.
