The W3C has a new, more streamlined process for Recommendation Track documents:

http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/#Reports


There is no longer an explicit "Last Call" stage required.

With my hat on as chair, I feel that Last Call is a useful phase of the process.  Our group works asynchronously, our features have impact on features defined by other WGs, and historically a Last Call announcement has been very fruitful for us in terms of receiving input from the broader community.  It is a signal to someone with limited time to devote to review that new features are not planned and things are approaching their final shape.

What do other members (and especially editors think)?  Should we abandon the Last Call in WebAppSec, or maintain it informally as part of our group's culture?

Thanks,
Brad Hill
