[BiO BB] Withdrawl of Refseq accessions

RefSeq predictions get withdrawn, modified, and promoted to reviewed  
transcripts all the time in the course of curation and manual review,  
more than in the thousands ... In fact, the NM_ section (reviewed and  
better) is equally dynamic, only withdrawals are rare and most  
changes concern annotation ...

Which reminds me: how many times has the 'final' human genome been  
published now?
