In substance what I said is that same comments before a face to face meeting 
where consensus is reached can't be of the same weight during the last call. 
If consensus is declared after discussion at the face to face meeting, only 
NEW and major arguments/issues should stop a policy during the last call. The 
last call period should be as straight forward as possible, and not another 
round to re-discuss the whole policy with points already raised and discussed 
(or not) before the face to face meeting. 

Discussions and comments before + during face to face meeting should weight 
more than comments during lats call. Doing that we push people to raise their
point before or during the face to face meeting where consensus will be sought.

We should be clear about when to close the loop, and it is in my sense the 
responsibility of the PDWG co-chairs to ensure that.
