Here is my alternative proposal...

As of the official transition date chosen by the AB/AC/W3M/whoever:

   1. Any spec in WD, CR, or REC is automatically transitioned into
      the new rules for WD/CR/REC, without republication or any WG

   2. Any spec in a transitional phase (LC/PR/PER) follows the current
      process until it gets to its next stable phase (WD/CR/REC),
      and from then on follows the new rules for WD/CR/REC.

Are there any reasons why this isn't complicated enough?
