W3M's guideline is to send it back to the AC when changes are made that 
are substantive (which we interpret traditionally to mean that we 
believe that they would effect a reviewer's review).  This is a judgment 

I'm interested in whether people think that this is a reasonable guideline.

Assuming it is a reasonable guideline, then there is the reality that it 
is possible to make an incorrect judgment in some case.
