Sure, because these are the Steps for "Transition to Last Call Working 
Draft"
but we are  requesting
"Transition to First WD and Last Call WD" at same time.
therefore we must also do the following request
http://www.w3.org/2005/08/transition?docstatus=fpwd-wd-tr

Right, there is a Transition Request for following steps:
- First WD
- CR
- PR

not for a second WD or a Last Call WD.

yes the Transition Request that I listed is for FPWD

Actually FPWD is the most simple case (CR and PR are more tricky as 
there is a long list of mandatory topics) you will see next time when 
moving to CR ;-)

Meanwhile I will draft the Transition Request for you tomorrow and will 
send it to you.

Then, when the Transition is accepted by the Director (It should be 
straightforward at this stage, the Director should approves the 
transition request, no meeting needed. The short name was already approved.)


- The Document Contact sends a publication request to the Webmaster at 
webreq@w3.org, cc'ing the relevant Domain Leader and optionally cc'ing 
w3c-archive@w3.org (I will draft that too)

- The Chair sends a transition announcement to chairs@w3.org and the 
group's public mailing list.

End of Story.

Welcome to the W3C process Lofton ;-)
Don't worry I have been trough these many times and I will help you to 
accomplish that task.
