Page lifespan?

I found some details on a musical festival, made my plans, and only found
out by chance that the site was two years out of date.

Is there some HTML way of setting a lifespan on a webpage on creation so
that, should the creator neglect to remove it, browsers will not render it?

If not should such a mechanism exist?
Perhaps with page expired message?

No.

Yes. The author should heep the web page up to date. Then again some web
pages last a very very long time. The HTML specs for instance.

Per RFC 2616, it is possible to set an expiration date for a page. This
can be done via
<META HTTP-EQUIV="expires" CONTENT="Wed, 26 Feb 2008 08:21:57 GMT">

However, that has no real effect on the existence of the page. It only
affects caching.

The only reason we have so many laws is that not enough people will do
the right thing. ( 1997)

I might have guessed that the situation would be worse than I had feared. We
have an "expires" provision, but the neither the page or some of its content
expires.
