I tentatively support the proposal. When a Working Draft is published for review beyond the Working Group, with a specific pointer to what should be reviewed, I think it should go to such a list.

Assuming that review can be done when a spec is mostly baked is a *problem*. Modern rapid development means that by that time the cost of changes is quite high. The time for review is when a feature is introduced.

(CG chair nitpicking:
This group doesn't tell W3C what to do. It makes requests.

Sometimes the AB works *in* this group - specifically in the context of its Process Task Force, which is currently chaired by Steve Zilles. While most people probably don't care about the various differences, it is probably helpful to try and keep them straight and clear.)

I couldn't care less what it's called.
