There was! Really!
http://www.w3.org/blog/SW/2012/07/13/rdf-working-group-publishes-turtle-as-last-call-working-draft/

Document maturity level: Working Draft.

Documents don't claim in their left hand header to be Last Call :\ In the
"Status of This Document" section you'll find:

"This is a Last Call Working Draft and thus the Working Group has
determined that this document has satisfied the relevant technical
requirements and is sufficiently stable to advance through the Technical
Recommendation process"
