The problem Ivan pointed out is "LCCR is a horrible name. Is there  
something better we can use"?

"Please review, because we're about to go into LCCR" seems OK to me. Why  
have a formal "almost LCCR" stage name?

> That can't be LC, can it?

No, but I don't think it needs a formal name at all...
