If I follow this thread, the point is that (a) we have no process for
formally approving the docs in question, so (b) they always remain
W-I-P or DRAFT, so (c) no one knows whether to believe them.

The proposal here, to which I am +1, is that all of the docs are
subject to patches and vetos. So we need no such marking, but rather
the members of the responsible PMC need to act on their responsibility
and talk/act if they see something so wrong that someone should *not*
believe it. Until then, we trust the committers of these docs to
commit things that people should believe.

If someone wants to propose a small-print footer that copies this
policy, which is already on the incubator 'how to update the website
page', someone should, well, commit it.
