The Chairs should define a procedure for entering Last Call and put it in the
Decision Policy. Here are our tentative thoughts:

1) Editor should advise the chairs privately (or say on list?) when he/she
feels a draft is ready for Last Call

2) If Chairs agree, we advise people that if they plan to object to Last Call,
they should make sure their concerns are at least recorded as a bug by then,
because we would rather not see new input on the Last Call resolution itself.
We will define a pre-LC review period with a cutoff date by which people should
get their concerns at least in bugzilla.

3) We do not go to Last Call until all bugs filed by the cutoff are in a
terminal state (which also implies resolving any issues escalated from those
bugs)

4) If the Chairs think that proceeding to Last Call is advisable given the
pre-LC review feedback, and how any bugs and issues resulting from it got
resolved, then we do a simple one-week Call for Consensus
