Ian and Steve,

I think it is worse than this. I probably allocated the number in 2011 
with the intention of finishing the paper soon but did not do so for 
over two years. It is listed as a new paper in the 2014 news page. Let's 
leave it listed as a 2011 paper - I think we need to keep the N numbers 
in sequence.

This predates my stewardship of the WG5 documents, but as these were just hosted on the NAG FTP site at the time, it would not at all astonish me if someone just updated the file on the server when a newer version became available. John has updated that paper over the years.
