The WGs voted in their meeting in Prague to publish the PR documents as
Recommendations subject to fixing of a handful of known errors. Editors have
authority to fix things that are purely typographical, e.g. a broken link or a
spelling mistake, but this is a technical correction so fixing it needs WG
endorsement. Otherwise we would be in the position that a WG member could
claim that the Recommendation as published is not what the WG voted to
publish.

Think what might happen if "errors" in an Act of Parliament were fixed after
Parliament had voted on it...
