I discussed a bunch of things around the CSS2 maintenance story with
plh today; I'll let him correct me if I mis-summarise him!

I believe he views "We want a draft with changes in-line for review
published on TR" as a goal we don't need: while we need to have "wide
review", we don't need a document in TR-space for this. We're strictly
making this harder for ourselves than we need to. We can just get the
wide-review done on the editor's draft (or, even, from the Director's
viewpoint, on the errata document itself!).

As such, his suggestion is that we just take the two-ED route and do that.

I'll also point out the wiki page has a paragraph beginning with
"Another option, and I think more usual, is to issue a Proposed Edited
Rec", but PERs don't exist under the 2017 Process, which from this
thread I believe is from Liam?
