DEP5 is in the process of being incorporated into the debian-policy
package, and once that is finished, there will be a stable URL to
the spec (with a version number in the URL), something like 


(But don't use that, since it's not working and might be different
from the real one when it actually happens.)

Prior to that, I prefer to not change the spec to incorporate
ever-growing numbers of example URLs (especially since when we
did that, people complained about that, too).

Until that happens, please use whatever URL you like. I use
http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep5/ myself.
