Is it possible to get a copy of the draft before the committee got to it?

The one problem that I see with these mark up languages, and it's minor,
is the amount of space the mark up takes. Sometimes the markup is more
than the contents of the document. What would be nice would be a standard
way of compressing these documents for storage and transmission. May be we
need a httpz (z as gzip).
