Well, yes, but until it's back I'm trying to use the words in the 
process document.

It's my interpretation of the stuff in 

It starts with "A TC may recommend that the Committee Draft be made 
an OASIS Standard." and then switches language to say that what is 
submitted is "A formal specification" as well as "Certification by at 
least three OASIS member organizations that they are successfully 
using the specification" so from my reading, that means that the 
certification has to be applied to the CD that we will be submitting, 
i.e. the one that we just voted on but that is not yet on the site. 
Nowhere does it say that you can certify you're using a previous 
version of the CD, nor that some version other than the CD can be 
made into an OASIS Standard. The CD here is not just any draft ready 
for review, it's the formal Committee Draft as specified in 
(i.e., the one that used to be called Committee Specification).
