For the same reason "PR" isn't a state for the Process - it isn't on the  
Recommendation Track. It isn't a W3C Technical Report (you can tell,  
because it is never published on /TR…)

According to the Process, we have an operative Process at any given time,  
and we change it by agreement (naturally, as determined by the W3C  
director).

I assume the 'request for PR' is actually a request for AC review.

Similarly, since this is not going to be a W3C Recommendation the Patent  
Policy, and therefore the bit at the end of the request about patents, is  
irrelevant and could be removed.

cheers
