    I'm curious what the benefit is of creating a new revision of *all*
    UAXs, including those which have not changed. I quickly scanned a
    sample of four of the documents under review, and three of them (24, 29,
    34) have no change except for boilerplate and copyright date (sometimes
    rendered as "20010," BTW). I know integers are cheap, but is this just
    a matter of following protocol or is there another benefit?
