There would have to be consensus on a policy proposal in Last 
Call.  The generally accepted practice is to have a deadline for a 
Last Call and to take the decision after that deadline.  The relevant 
timeline (please see Section 5.5 of the original document) in the PDP 
was intended to provide the flexibility for a variety of 
circumstances.  There is, in my opinion, provision for the above [1].
