Feel free to review it next week, and to discuss it at the call on 
Monday. We do not need to take a month waiting for people to come up 
with comments. There comes a time, as I said in the f2f, where we say, 
okay, we can live with this. Minor wordsmithing can continue after Last 
Call. If we are generally happy with this document, it is time to move 
it up the ladder.

If we don't publish by November 18th, then we don't have a draft we can 
announce at the Advisory Committee on December 2nd. There is a 
publishing moratorium after that which prevents us from moving to the 
/TR portion of the site. The next opportunity to hit all of the W3C at 
once is March, at the Tech Plenary. If we want a reasonable amount of 
commentary in a short period of time (and we do), then we need to hit 
the target that has been set.
