Working Groups are free, and it's even recommended, to request review from interested parties as early as useful, review from horizontal re- view groups such as WAI, I18N, and QA in particular. Working Groups are further expected to ensure that organizations represented in the group have completed their review of the document before going to last call. There are also many documents that are supposed to help here, many issues can be resolved early following recommendations in various documents such as W3C's Manual of Style, the Character Model, various TAG findings, RFC 3552, W3C's QA Specification Guidelines and so on, for those you don't even need external reality checks. If you want to try Big Bang integration at Last Call instead, you get, well, a Big Bang. No surprises there. It's difficult to believe that Working Groups need to be made aware of this, or, worse, that getting to Recommendation faster needs to be enforced at some level outside the individual Working Groups. -- Björn Höhrmann · mailto:bjoern@h... · http://bjoern.hoehrmann.de Weinh.
