Oh, dear!  The lc-changes.html is supposed to document the changes from the 
CR document to that which we offer for PR.  These result from the two LC
periods.  I think the preamble says that.  In any case I think there are 8
new entries added which have [LC2] labels.

That last is something I didn't catch and presumably have to adjust. I think
we need as the diff that between final PR and CR.  That's what a Team Meeting
might worry about.

I noted above what I think the intent was.  Of course, with only 8 new entries
it isn't hard to break things out into an lc-changes (exactly as was) and lc2-changes
with diff between PR and LC2.  I thought the point was PR relative to CR.
