I think my point was missed. Section 2 says:

All published versions will be archived using URLs of the form 
<http://www.ietf.org/tao-YYYYMMDD.html>.

My question is: Where is there a list of all of the tao version files? 
How would one be able to find out the name of the previous version so 
they could do a diff and see what has changed? How can I see a history 
of the files?

Here is a suggested addition to section 2:

     Each version of the Tao will also have a link to a history page of 
all versions.

Or something like that. The mechanics what that page looks like can be 
determined later -- it doesn't really matter right now, nor does it 
matter right now what the address is.
