What I think you include in your statement on "3-6 months" is the  
discussion period until people agree what text should be in some  
document. And that time you will end up with regardless of whether a  
document is produced as an RFC or as a document that is up for public  
comment by other means. I.e. that time period can be short or long  
depending on how fast consensus is reached. Independent on what kind  
of review you want.

For RFCs, contrary to other public comment period, we have in the IETF  
an explicit tracking mechanism that ensure things are not dropped.  
Well documented mechanism for appeal procedure etc.
