I'm presuming none of the 62 issues/errata will reset the 6 month CR clock
since they are not major errors.  Is this correct?

If a major error did arise, would there be an easy to grep tag in the
subject line?  (Similar to the "[CSS21]" tag at the beginning of CR

I understand the internal draft is just that, internal.  But, any visibility
or hints the WG might provide about the changes would be greatly
appreciated.  :o}

A simple compromise would be to create a thread here that documents the
proposed changes, or at least the identified issue that is causing the WG to
change the CR.  Again, the WG could tag each change with a
"[CSS21-some-arbitrary-token]" tag in the subject line.  You can make the
tag as neutral and content free as you'd like (how 'bout [CSS21-Glomer]).
