As I explained on the call today, Sam and I agree that if the Chairs agree to re-open ISSUE-30 it will become a Last Call issue and NOT a pre-Last Call issue.  If we started to permit closed/resolved pre-LC issues to be re-opened as pre-LC issues just because of their original escalation date then we would severely risk out ability to get to Last Call in May.

Issue 30 was escalated February 6, 2008.
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/30


The request would be to reopen that previously escalated issue and resolve it before last call based on new information.

Is that possible?

Thank you.

Best Regards,
Laura
