         <p>This is a revised draft proposal to replace the <a href="http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr.html">current
             chapter 7 of the W3C process document</a> with a more effective W3C
           Specification life cycle following the meeting of the W3C Advisory
-          Board Process Task Force on 7 October 2013. This document is an
-          editor's draft for the Advisory Board but does not yet fully reflect
-          consensus. The Task Force proposed to request that the Advisory Board
-          consider, at its 14 October meeting, recommending the content of this
-          draft for adoption by the Advisory Committee as a replacement for the
-          existing Chapter 7.</p>
