We can't remove old versions - they're there specifically
because past published LSB specifications reference specific
versions and those must remain available so those links
remain valid. This is in fact the exact reason why they are
mirrored on refspecs, because we can't change history, but
upstream sites are likely to drop specific versions (my own
employer does this with great impunity). I believe the
published ISO LSB specification, AMD64 volume, contains this link.

We can certainly entertain a requests that future LSB
specifications reference a newer version of the x86_64 ABI.
