FWIW, I agree that the "tools version" is better in every way
that I can think of than the static HTML version.  But for those
of us who are still enough members of the dinosaur age to still
sometimes read things on WiFi-free airplanes and trains and
(shudder) still sometimes mark up paper, _please_ don't
implement this change the way the change to the I-D
announcements was done, i.e., by forcing a several-stage
click-through process to get to whatever versions are not the
preferred version of the year.
