okay.
  "archive" because that's where the draft goes after it's no longer current.

1) Would some kind of 30x redirect make sense?
2) Or maybe a custom 404 error document that suggested maybe look there?
   {obviously, both are somewhat active content, which may be undesireable}

I think that we need to think about how to deal with the many different links
we have.  (this is a group question, not a Henrik-only question...)

In the meantime, I guess the DT status page is the best way to refer to a
document.
