You don't need implementers implementing from the latest revision of the draft.

You need implementers implementing from a _considered_ version of the draft, and a fixed referencable point at that.

On the author's note: We've already discussed not promoting discussion on WHATWG. This is an IETF draft; all discussion needs to be on hybi. Are you not following IETF list discussion except in sporadic bursts?

The note is there because Joe requested that I not update the IETF copy as often as the WHATWG copy. I need implementors looking at the latest version of the draft. I don't really mind if they look at the HTML copy on the WHATWG site (part of the Web Apps 1.0 draft), the text copy on the WHATWG site, or the text copy on the IETF site, so long as what they look at is up to date. Should I resume sending updates to the IETF draft as I make them?

Is there a reference anywhere that explains how to get an account there? 
I'd be happy to update my scripts to also upload a copy there. If we can host the latest copy of the spec there I'm more than happy to change the link in the note at the top to point to that draft instead, if that would make everyone at the IETF less nervous.

For why?
