Hi WebDawg,

I am not aware of a formally established process for submitting draft 
documents for consideration. For the purpose of discussing such a 
document, conceivably, it could have been hosted anywhere (www, wiki, 
google docs, github gist, etc.), or not hosted at all (e.g. the entire 
text sent as a post to the mailing list).

As I understood it, the original idea was for people to view the 
document and submit comments via the mailing list.

I don't believe it was ever intended for anyone but the original authors 
to directly edit the document as hosted on the www site.

As for alternate proposals, comments, etc., they could have been 
delivered in any form (IRC, mailing list, github gist, etc).

The need to provide an editable version of the document to be directly 
edited by community members wasn't (I don't believe) ever considered.
