I don't know (apart from chairs and editors) who has read the document 
start to end, but we have asked people in the group to review it several 
times (we've also asked other groups to review it - and received comments).

The fact that big parts of the document has several implementations is 
to me a sign that it has been reviewed - all implementers (I assume) has 
read the document when implementing (and filed Issues when things are 
not clear).

Speaking of Issues: that the count of github Issues and Pull Requests is 
now at 1149 is another sign of reviewing - and note that we only moved 
to github in the fall 2014, we had another bug tracker before that.

The APIs and features specified in webrtc-pc are also widely used.

Given that going to CR is done to [1]:

"- signal to the wider community that it is time to do a final review
- gather implementation experience
- begin formal review by the Advisory Committee, who may recommend that 
the document be published as a W3C Recommendation, returned to the 
Working Group for further work, or abandoned.
- Provide an exclusion opportunity per the W3C Patent Policy [PUB33]."

my personal view is that we're fine when it comes to reviewing. People 
tell me that for a document this complex we'll iterate at least once at 
CR, so I'd like to get to the first CR now.

Going to later levels (PR, Rec) puts higher requirements (not least 
regarding testing). I think we're fine for CR.

Cheers,
Stefan
