If the proposal says that no spec change is needed, then it's not  
technically necessary to write it unless someone first writes a  
proposal that *does* suggest a spec change. That being said:

- You're free to write a no-change proposal pre-emptively anyway.
- You can suggest publishing additional drafts at any time without the  
need for a Change Proposal, though of course nothing will actually be  
published until someone provides an actual draft.
