If it wasn't clear the issue was already reported quite a while back and
then again by me, they eventually woke up to the issue yesterday and
have since fixed it.

As to keeping our own copy, while that gives some redundancy, to make it
useful we would need to fix all the links out there and short term I
don't see anybody having time, and in the end we would -still- need the
ODC link to work for all documents that we can't retroactively change.
