What you wrote is worded very similar to the other requirements in the
requirements document, see http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-itsreq-20051122/
. How about putting your paragraph into that document? At
, we have a link to requirements which are not addressed yet.

I would strongly disagree with putting that text, namely about a
not-addressed requirement, in the last call draft. There are many people
who will just beat us up saying "what is your concept of last call"?

Regards, Felix.
