This was voted some time ago:
http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi/httpd-docs-2.0/STATUS?r1=1.71&r2=1.72&diff_format=h

(which doesn't mean, of course, that it could not be discussed further ;)

I think, stable URLs (with version numbers) are better here, because there are
many references out there, which would break otherwise.

A compromise could be to add such URLs as placeholders (i.e. redirects) to
the appropriate docs directory, but I don't see much sense in this.
