This strategy is ok with me, but I want to state more clearly what I
said before, and that is that once we have a complete document, in my
opinion it would be very wise to have another short last call on the
changed documents.  It's too bad we should have finally twigged to the
significance of Wil's June comment at WGLC, but that's what LCs are
for.  We shouldn't compound our error, however, by sending the
document up without a second look.
