I know, but that does not prevent us from providing good information.

I'd like to know what Access thinks here. I'd also like to get input  
from known implementers from outside the WG (e.g. Samsung).

Your plan only fails to affect implementers if a) everyone is more or  
less tracking the WG, and b) the draft doesn't change too much.

I can go with the plan of a short LC taking place after we've fixed  
bugs in the ED, but only if those are relatively containable bugs  
(i.e. we're not rewriting the whole processing model) and they're well- 
advertised, or the concern a separate product class. Someone who  
thought we'd be in CR for 6 months shouldn't come back in a few  
months' time to find that we've tricked them.

Also, does going to LC again re-open an exclusionary period? I think  
we can't go to Rec (and probably not to PR) until the exclusionary  
period is over. Dom?
