Despite our efforts, it appears we have identified a sufficient  
number of issues with the 23-July-2009 CR such that we need to  
publish LC#3. Given this, we do indeed have an option to publish CR#2  
or go directly to PR.

I am not particularly comfortable with skipping CR#2 especially since  
we have no way of knowing who is actually implementing our published  
CR, in particular the normative Conformance Checker requirements that  
will presumably be removed from the spec. As such, I prefer  
publishing CR#2 since it sends a clear signal to any implementor the  
July CR is superseded.

Additionally, given the mandatory 2-month exclusion period that will  
start upon LC#3's publication, it appears the "short route" i.e.  
skipping CR#2 won't actually save us any time. That is, during that  
same amount of time we can a) publish LC#3 (3 weeks) and b) publish  
CR#2 with a relatively short CR (e.g. 4 weeks).

A rough schedule would then be: during the Nov 2-3 f2f meeting agree  
to all changes for LC#3; November 10 LC#3 is published and Exclusion  
period begins; December 1 LC#3 ends; Dec 9 CR#2 is published; January  
5 CR#2 ends as does the Exclusion period; mid January publish PR.
