There is no such thing as a "revised CR". There is only republication of an existing CR. With that a new Exclusion Announcement is likely so people watching the spec will be appraised of the update. The AV Review opens with the initial CR publication and does not end until N days after the spec becomes a PR. So there is no need, from a purely formal viewpoint, to "restart" CR. If your issue is that the changes need to be announced, that makes sense to me, but when there is a Call for Exclusions that should suffice as the announcement.

With respect to point 2, I read the statement as saying "at risk" features can be dropped on entry to PR, but it could be more clearly stated.

I don't think that my two previous email review comments have been

1. I still see confusion between 7.4 CR and 7.4.1 Revising a CR.  In
7.4.1 Revising a CR, there is no listed requirement for the Director to
announce the publication and begin an AC review.  But I assume we would
want that to happen since it is essentially a new CR document.

Perhaps it is implied because we are implying (in 7.4.1) that it is a
revised CR - hence it must go through CR processing.  But I don't think
it is clear.  And it is further muddled because we give the WG 5
bulleted actions to accomplish in 7.4.1 - rather than finding a way to
collapse them into 7.4.

2. Once a document is in PR, I would think that "at risk" features can
no longer be dropped.  But 7.5 seems to say that we still MAY remove
