Note that the Process[1] calls for transition to CR (and others) being made based on the maturity of the draft, not based on deadlines. (and the currently slightly ambiguous wording is in the undergoing a rewrite to make that clearer[2]).

This certainly does not prevent us from putting somewhat aggressive deadlines in a charter if we believe they can be met, but that implies that we are expecting to be actively working towards meeting these deadlines, not that it will be OK to publish what we have then as a CR regardless of maturity.
