In fact, while we're talking about intent, wasn't the software
implementation of the change history created before the GFDL was adopted?
It seems to me that the change history couldn't possibly have been intended

[[Wikipedia:GFDL History]] page provided this.  It wasn't deleted until 28
December 2006.  See
