My reading is that the group *may* identify (possibly new) "at risk" 
features before re-issuing a CR that this section is dealing with. 
Which is identical to what the group is allowed to do before issuing 
the original CR.

Removing 'at risk' features happen when going to PR, and is the 
natural possible action with or without a new CR publication.

That is my reading, too. We would need a bona fide CR republication 
with the Director's approval.
