Good points.  Now in https://github.com/cbor-wg/array-tags/commit/ee36dae682028e19abd162a81b0adb768d703140

This is a historical reference which unfortunately no longer resolves.
It is too bad that historical references cannot be qualified as such in the RFC format.
I wouldn’t mind to erase this part of history from the draft if historical references of this kind are not acceptable.
