The mechanism the W3C process provides for an appeal is to raise a Formal
Objection. You can raise a formal objection about any WG decision, and the
WG is responsible for recording that FO and including it as part of any
transition request to advance the spec the next maturity level for which
Director approval is required. Director approval is (was) not required for
the group to publish a Last Call WD. The next transition step that does
require Director approval is advancing the spec to CR.

So if you were to raise an FO, I think you would need to raise it
(retroactively) against the May 24 WG Decision to proceed to Last Call:

The chairs would then be responsible for recording it along with the
other LC formal objections here:
