I agree to this. Referencing drafts is a risk. Not only because the 
draft may change, but also because drafts may be withdrawn. This for 
instance happened to the CSS3 Text Module, that before it has been 
withdrawn, had the "Candidate Recommendation" status.

Further, as far as I know, ISO and maybe also OASIS does not allow us to 
reference drafts in a normative way.

Best regards
