This was done, and was noted in the Director's decision:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-admin/2014Aug/0020.html

Just so everybody is aware of the timeline, the document that was 
published contains the following line:

This Candidate Recommendation is expected to end no sooner than 26 
August 2014.

Hopefully this provides sufficient time to prepare a Formal Objection. 
If this date should prove to be problematic for any reason, please let 
us know well in advance.
