As pedantic a point of fact, you'll need that to _leave_ CR and go to 
PR.  Entering CR doesn't have any requirement on implementations, since 
technically CR entrance is when the call for implementations happens.

In practice, implementation feedback is best had before CR, since it 
might well require radical changes...  Reconciling these issues is kinda 
tough.  :(
