Hi Warwick,

From our discussions, I believe that the date for last call (Jan 2002) was
chosen based at least in part on W3C process requirements.  The official W3C
working group is expected to be established in October (approximately 8
weeks after submission of the Activity Proposal) and then 3 months
(required?) till the Last Call.  I suspect though that there would be W3C
resistance to moving to last call only one month after the official working
group was formed.  (I.e. Although the document has been public since Jan
2001, it has not been available to the official W3C process for comments...)
Maybe Joseph can expand?  

Cheers,
Mike
