I'll review the draft as soon as I can, but just to answer this
question for now:

> Appendix A of the current draft lists the five non-draft things that I have
> heard requests to track:
>        Tracking RFC Status Changes and Errata
>        Tracking WG Charter Changes
>        Tracking IANA Registry Changes

I support...

> b) Add just "RFC Status Changes and Errata"

My reasoning is that this should be part of tracking a document from
beginning to end.  You watch it as a draft, you continue watching as
it becomes an RFC, you see errata being posted, etc.

Also, what that says to me is that if I'm watching
draft-furbie-feedme-please, and that becomes RFC 6666, I should be
watching that, as well, without having to do it manually.  (Or perhaps
that should be an option when I start following it -- to specify
whether I want to keep following it as it's replaced by
draft-ietf-feedme-base-protocol and then by RFC 6666.)
