I don't think routine maintenance of the websites for the standards
implies authority over the technical contents of the standards
themselves. Empirically, it's clear that we can't rely on authors to
produce their own websites.

If an author of a particular RnRS wants to make a change to its website,
we should give them veto power over the site, but in the absence of such
initiative it would help the user community of those standards if we
took care of some basics like fixing dead links and serving the
standards in different formats.
