[rpd] End of Last Call for SL Update and IPv6 PI Clarification Policies

Your active contribution to the RPD is appreciated, Sylvain. While not
holding brief for the current co-chairs && while agreeing that we could
do better in terms of timely execution, I think that for any number of
reasons, an earlier announced date could have been missed - especially
if nobody made comments on the subject matter and/or we all
forgot/neglected to check on the progress on the list.

As to your concern about someone getting the opportunity to make a late
comment because he forgot the deadline and the co-chairs did not close
on the set date, I think you should look at it like this:
If the late comment is reasonable (apart from its late timing) and helps
us make better policy, this group and its chairs will have to take it
into consideration regardless of the missed timelines. I believe
consideration of reasonable inputs should supersede strict timelines.
