Yes we deal with this resolution to move to PR by email with the aboce 
procedure you mentioned, ( or I could setup a questionnaire collecting 
answers, if needed). Therefore no need for a telecon and get full 

.... Therefore (per

It takes about a week to plan a Transition Call with the director for 
moving to PR.
Than another few days for Publication of the proposed Rec in TR space.

After Publication, Once we have sent a Proposed Recommendation 
transition announcement to W3C Members and Chairs the AC reviews begins 
for a  period that MUST last at least four weeks.

Yes I could start working on this Transition Request and we shoul plan a 
   Tansition call for 10-15 january.

Yes, seems good.

OK please do that to have a final frozen document. Then we can ask the 
WebCGM WG to agree to move to PR (I need this for the Transition Request).
> 4.) plan for a 30-day (AC) PR review, mid-January until mid-February.

Yes this seems to be the proper timing (may need an extra week).

Is the implementation matrix uptodate with the current level of 
implementation ?

Does the implementation cover page needs more work ?
