Setting up a redirection like that doesn't help. Anyone who wants
a URL with the svn revision number embedded can already use one.

It does not matter what the URL is, since they're all wrong, and
the only right one is the one that does not exist yet, and which
the policy team will eventually set up, when they get round to it.

Until the policy URL for DEP5 happens, don't worry about the Format
URL. There are actual bugs to fix. (And any sponsor that requires any
particular URL for the Format field can go soak their head.)
