I'm happy with splitting these up, but can we also manage to sort out
some related updates to XEP-0001:
a) I'd like to be able to have "stable" and "working" copies of the
same spec, particularly for major revisions like XEP-0045 is
currently going through.
b) I'd like to be able to have the ability to enter a XEP that's been
hived off from another mature XEP (or RFC) directly into Draft, for
instance. This has come up previously.
