You mean pre-Last Call, if the Working Group decides to address them by
making changes that are not minor changes like "clarifications, bug
fixes, editorial repairs, and minor error corrections". Here:

  A technical report is returned to a Working Group for further work in 
  either of the following situations:

    1. The Working Group makes substantive changes to the technical
       report at any time after a Last Call announcement and prior to
       Publication as a Recommendation, except when the changes involve
       the removal of features at risk identified in a Call for 
       Implementations. In the case of substantive changes, the Working
       Group MUST republish the technical report as a Working Draft.

    2. The Director requires the Working Group to address important
       issues raised during a review or as the result of implementation
       experience. In this case, Director MAY request that the Working 
       Group republish the technical report as a Working Draft, even if 
       the Working Group has not made substantive changes.

  The Director MUST inform the Advisory Committee and group Chairs when
  a technical report has been returned to a Working Group for further
  work.

  After republication as a Working Draft, the next forward step
  available to the Working Group is a Last Call announcement. The Last
  Call announcement MAY occur at the same time as the publication of
  the Working Draft.

As per <http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Process/process.html#return-to-wg>.

By the way, could you point me to the document the Working Group has
published under the provisions of Process section 6.2.7 3rd paragraph?
