It is not unprecedented in terms of ensuring adequate opportunity for review.
E.g. in ISO process, technical changes cannot be made without a ballot period after which reactive changes can be made.
Resetting the clock for technical changes is the mechanism applicable here to ensure last minute technical changes can't be made without adequate opportunity for review.

This is an informative comment, added by consensus to something under
review. I did not say "restart the clock". Why does the clock have to
be restarted EVERY TIME? This is unprecedented in what I would call
"normal" standardization. Can't we use our intelligence?
