It may be simpler to deal with this one if it is separated from the 
other appeal related wording change.

*** This is not asking for a new appeal.  This appeal is already 
approved.  It is asking to add it to the list in the Process document to 
reflect the actual list of what can be appealed. ***

W3C (AC and Director) approved a new licensing policy for relicensing 
unfinished specifications on 5 December 2014.
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-ac-members/2014OctDec/0049.html

That new licensing policy appears in W3C's licensing policies page:"See 
also the policy for relicensing unfinished W3C specifications 
<http://www.w3.org/2014/12/relicense.html>"
http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/2002/ipr-notice-20021231

That approved policy includes an appeal of the Director's decision that 
follows the AC Review of the request.
http://www.w3.org/2014/12/relicense.html#decision

So, there is an appeal of a Director's decision after an AC Review that 
is not in the list in the Process Document (because it was just approved 
last December).  Putting it in the list does not create a new appeal.  
It already exists.  Putting it in the list makes the list reflect the 
reality of what can be appealed.   It is an update to reflect what W3C 
has already approved.

Here is the current list from the Process:
[[
When Advisory Committee review immediately precedes a decision, Advisory 
Committee representatives MAY only appeal when there is dissent 
<http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/#def-Dissent>. These decisions 
are:

  * Publication of a Recommendation
    <http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/#rec-publication> or
    Publication of a Rescinded Recommendation
    <http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/#proposed-rescinded-rec>,
  * Activity creation
    <http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/#ActivityProposal>,
    modification

  * Working or Interest Group creation
    <http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/#cfp> or extension
