This model is very effective (IMO) because it means that no change goes into a spec without a thorough review from at least one WG member. It also lets everyone know exactly what is changing and the opportunity for reviewers to also contribute. This also means that there is no need to keep an "Editor's draft" - instead, Editors just work on feature branches which land into the WD once reviewed and approved by the relevant WG members.

And, when PRs are used for contributions, the workflow above also 
facilitates tracking the provenance of contributions.
