In the quest for broader review, I think a goal for the Chairs of 
PD-2005 WGs should be zero or absolute minimal changes to their work 
flow. As such, my expectation for the two PD-2005 WGs I chair, is that 
after a LCWD is published, I will continue to send LCWD Transition 
Announcements to the chairs list and to separately send some type of RfC 
to the groups we want to review the LCWD. If/when the 
public-review-announcement is created, I would just plan to either Cc: 
or Bcc: that list when I send a RfC to the groups I want to review the 
LCWD. This additional Cc/Bcc to p-r-a is the only additional step I 
foresee to *my* LCWD workflow thus the form doesn't seem to be 
especially useful for this scenario.

I haven't participated in a WG using PD-2014 so I'm not familiar with 
the workflow changes for those chairs. For example, are those chairs 
supposed to notify the chairs list when they publish a WD for which they 
seek broad review of some WD (as is expected with PD-2005 LCWD 
TransAnn's)? Perhaps these groups will find the form useful but 
presumably they still have to send RfCs to specific groups.

If/when p-r-a is created, <https://www.w3.org/wiki/DocumentReview> will 
need to be updated to reflect this list's usage and I'd be happy to take 
the first stab at that. I would also expect the PubTeam to automagically 
announce all FPWD and LCWD publications on that list. Is that consistent 
with what you are thinking? Also, who do we expect to subscribe to the 
list: all WG and IG Chairs, just the Chairs of the 
<https://www.w3.org/wiki/DocumentReview#Horizontal_Groups>, Staff of WGs 
and IGs, ...

-Thanks, AB
