The timeline has the AC review starting in PR, but unless I'm missing 
something, the 2018 Process says this should be triggered at CR 

 From 6.1.2:
"A Candidate Recommendation is a document that satisfies the technical 
requirements of the Working Group that produced it and their 
dependencies, or makes substantive corrections to a Recommendation that 
is not maintained by a Working Group, and has already received wide 
review. W3C publishes a Candidate Recommendation to
- 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.
Note: A Candidate Recommendation under this process corresponds to the 
"Last Call Working Draft" discussed in the Patent Policy."

It goes on:
"A Proposed Recommendation is a document that has been accepted by the 
W3C Director as of sufficient quality to become a W3C Recommendation. 
This phase establishes a deadline for the Advisory Committee review that 
begins with Candidate Recommendation. Substantive changes must not be 
made to a Proposed Recommendation except by publishing a new Working 
Draft or Candidate Recommendation."
