So that parts of the document may be ready for "wide review" even though all of the document may not be so ready. The CSS WG has, in fact, chosen to split documents when a basic core of content is mature and to remove the less mature pieces for a subsequent version.  The intent was that the Status Section of each draft indicate what were the major changes since a prior draft and what should be reviewed. The document could, therefore, say the whole document should be reviewed for consistency and completeness, but this is just another WD (prior to Last Call).

OK, but then they are not ready to go to LCCR, are they, which (in the new process) asks that the whole document has had "wide review".  I'm saying that it's good to have a 'stamp' on a whole document that you're intending to take to LCCR, and are asking for the 'wide review' on.  Not piecemeal review, mind you, a review of a consistent document…

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