The Process indicates the following:
If there are any substantive changes made to a Candidate Recommendation 
other than to remove features explicitly identified as "at risk", the 
Working Group must obtain the Director's approval to publish a revision 
of a Candidate Recommendation. This is because substantive changes will 
generally require a new Exclusion Opportunity per section 4 of the W3C 
Patent Policy [PUB33]. Note that approval is expected to be fairly 
simple compared to getting approval for a transition from Working Draft 
to Candidate Recommendation.

My understanding is that the W3C Process allows the publication of a 
revised candidate recommendation *without* Director's approval if there 
are *no substantive changes*. It would also mean that no call for 
exclusions are issued as well.

Is that a correct understanding?
