I understand that The Process gives some leeway here and it seems likely that the decisions made at LC will be influenced by, for example, whether we need two complete interoperable implementations of every feature, just two of each feature (possible spread over > 2 implementations) or something else, whether we take the relatively tight schedule in the charter seriously, and probably several other things.

The W3C Process doesn't call for CR entrance criteria, however, it is common to have PR entrance criteria, commonly notated as CR Exit Criteria. I would hope that before we go to CR, the WG will come up with what should be our CR Exit Critera for various drafts, and we can put them in the drafts themselves.
