Last Call means getting the work on the radar of other Groups beyond the 
obvious coordinations that were already required in the charter. 

Last Call means that the Working Group issuing the Last Call believes 
that it has done its work and is now looking for feedback from others, 
as Jeff has put it. 

As the Plan is a Plan to -> get to Last Call, I assume it does not 
preclude much for the post Last Call phase. In case we hear really 
really something new that really really breaks our model, I think nobody 
will mind going back to the drawing board. 

But if last call comments just iterate the same things we have overcome 
in a long process leading to last call, chances are high that there will 
be no substantial changes, thus your comment is formally correct, but 
doesn't really advance the insight.
