The versions in /TR/ include links to their latest Editor's Draft:

   http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/access-control/
   http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/UMP/

If someone is interested in these specs, the EDs are the correct version 
to use.

Currently, public-webapps is the right list for related discussions.

These two specs are explicit deliverables in the proposed Web 
Application Security WG [WebAppSec] (last updated July 2010). Several 
months ago I  asked W3C Staff for an update/status of this proposed WG 
but never received a reply.

Earlier this month, both Noah and I both asked the Staff about the 
status of this proposed WG and I didn't receive a reply.

Noah - if you got a response please share it.

I didn't know about your action and I will certainly notify you when 
WebApps publishes a LCWD of these specs.

FYI, some implementation data for these specs is provided in:
