We at Apple are also in reviewing the spec and would also like additional time to review. It doesn't matter that much to us if the review time is before or during Last Call, but we definitely can't do a meaningful review by February 2, and therefore cannot really sign off by that date on whether the document has satisfied relevant technical requirements, is feature-complete, and has all issues resolved.

(As far as I can tell the document is less than 4 months old as an Editor's Draft and is about 60 pages long, so I hope it is reasonable to ask for some reasonable amount of review time.)
