I agree proposed elements don't belong in this spec, which is to
document current practice.  Aside from that, and on this point,
it's worth paying attention to how lawyers must mark up edited
docs, because there are presumably good reasons for the 
distinctions they make that might be useful generally.

However, NEW is kinda specific, and might better be rolled into
a more general element (CHANGED, with an attribute that could
have the value DELETED or NEW, just as an example).
