That is actually not what Last Call is about per the W3C Process. When a  
Working Group advances to Last Call it is expected to have resolved its  
differences with other W3C Working Groups. Last Call is also very much for  
public review. Once a specification reaches Candidate Recommendation it is  
expected to not change much anymore so the public should definitely review  
it before that.
