process section 6.4 CR - sentence in the wrong place (so unclear what it refers to)

In the W3C Process section 6.4 on the Candidate Recommendation stage, it 
says: "If there was any dissent 
<https://www.w3.org/2015/Process-20150901/#def-Dissent> to the Working 
Group decision to request advancement Advisory Committee 
<https://www.w3.org/2015/Process-20150901/#AC> representatives /may/ 
appeal <https://www.w3.org/2015/Process-20150901/#ACAppeal> the decision 
to advance the technical report."
https://www.w3.org/2015/Process-20150901/#candidate-rec

That sentence appears after the usual paragraph on possible next steps 
(publish another revised CR or move to PR, etc.).  Appearing after next 
steps section makes it unclear what request for advancement is subject 
to appeal.  If it is only about the advancement to CR, not the request 
for advancement in a next step after that, it should move above that 
next steps section. (generally it is clearer if next steps is last like 
it is for FPWD).

Also, the link to appeal in the text is to AC appeal, so this is an 
appeal of the Director's decision to advance.  It isn't an appeal of the 
WG decision to ask to advance, so it should say "the Director's 
decision" rather than "the Decision".

I thought we could clean up that wording as part of the effort to fix up 
AC appeals.
