Let me try this again:

How will we designate comments that are to be treated as Last Call 
comments in this email group? Do we use [Last Call Comment] in the 
subject line or something in order to designate an item as a Last Call 
Comment? Or should we wait until an official Last Call request is made?

I'm not going to enter bugs into the bugzilla database starting 
tomorrow, because I'll most likely handle a Last Call comment 
differently than I would do a bug request. I'm willing to wait until the 
Last Call is made, if that's what the co-chairs would prefer.

I have also not received a definitive answer on submitting change 
proposals as a non-member. And this one does have an open bug in the 
bugzilla database.
