-        <p>This is a draft proposal to replace the <a href="http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr.html">current
-            chapter 7 of the W3C process document</a> with a more effective W3C
-          Specification life cycle. </p>
-        <p>This draft follows the <a href="https://www.w3.org/wiki/AB/2014-03-SF">4-5
-            March meeting of the W3C Advisory Board</a> and incorporates all
-          known outstanding review comments. It is proposed to the Advisory
-          Board for final review. If there is no disagreement, the Advisory
-          Board expects to request that the Advisory Committee review a version
-          of the Process Document with chapter 7 replaced by this chapter,
-          followed by a formal survey on accepting the new version as the
-          operative process document.</p>
-        <p>This introductory section (before the chapter title below) will be
-          removed when this chapter is re-incorporated into the full process
-          document.</p>
-        <p>An initial version was first proposed to the W3C Advisory Board on 13
-          May 2013 as a possible replacement for the <a href="http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr.html">current
-            chapter 7 of the W3C process document</a>, and a <a href="http://yadi.sk/d/Zikwkr385JG8f">subsequent
-            version</a> was <a href="http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-w3process/2013May/0023.html">proposed</a>
-          to the <a href="http://www.w3.org/community/w3process/">W3C Process
-            Community Group</a> on 29 May 2013 by Charles Nevile &lt;<a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a>&gt;
-          for discussion. Subsequent editor's drafts have been public, to enable
-          broad input. However, following the existing process, the Advisory
-          Board retains formal responsibility for decisions on what it proposes
-          to the Advisory Committee, and the adoption of any change to the
-          process will follow the <a href="http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/processdoc.html#GAProcess">existing
-            process for such changes</a>, subject to the resolution of <a href="https://www.w3.org/community/w3process/track/issues/39">ISSUE-39</a>.</p>
-        <p>I am grateful to the W3C Advisory Board, the W3C Process Community
-          Group, Art Barstow, Robin Berjon, Wayne Carr, Marcos Cáceres,
-          Fantasai, Daniel Glazman, Ivan Herman, Ian Hickson, Ian Jacobs, Jeff

-          many people I have forgotten to acknowledge for suggestions, comments
-          and discussions that helped me sort out my thinking, and to Ora
-          Lassila for the original version of the image that illustrates the
-          normal progress of a W3C Recommendation-track document. </p>

-            href="http://www.w3.org/community/w3process/">W3C Process Community
-            Group</a>. Issues related to this proposal are recorded in that

-        <h4> Major changes: </h4>
-        <ul>
-          <li>New requirements that Working groups <em class="rfc2119">should</em>
-            document known implementation and <span class="rfc2119">must</span>
-            document expected next steps for all publications </li>
-          <li>New requirement that Working groups <em class="rfc2119">should</em>
-            publish abandoned work as a W3C Note</li>
-          <li>Recognition that Interest Groups <span class="rfc2119">may</span>
-            publish W3C Notes</li>
-          <li>If W3C closes a Working Group, they <em class="rfc2119">must</em>
-            republish its unfinished work as Notes. </li>
-          <li>Implementation requirements for passing beyond Candidate
-            Recommendation are not simply listed as "2 interoperable
-            implementations", instead a new sections gives guidance on what is
-            considered when assessing "<a href="#implementation-experience">adequate
-              implementation experience</a>".</li>
-          <li>Instead of relying on a Last Call publication for adequate review
-            Working Groups must demonstrate "<a href="#wide-review">wide review</a>"
-            to publish a spec as Candidate Recommendation, while leaving them to
-            achieve this as they see fit.</li>
-          <li>There is a stronger emphasis (without creating new formal
-            requirements) on getting review and testing implementation as early
-            as possible. How to do this is left to Working Groups to determine.</li>
-          <li>Last Call and Candidate Recommendation have been collapsed
-            together. Some of the requirements are therefore enforced earlier in
-            the process.</li>
-          <li>Advisory Committee review now begins at the same time as Candidate
-            recommendation, and ends no less than 4 weeks after publication as a
-            Proposed Recommendation.&nbsp;</li>
-          <li>The Director is required to address dissenting AC review comments
-            <strong>publicly</strong>, 2 weeks <em>before</em> publication of a
-            Recommendation.</li>
-          <li>Errata cannot be made normative except by revising a
-            Recommendation</li>
-          <li>And it is in HTML5</li>
-        </ul>
-        <p>Editorially, I have tried to rationalize requirements and clarify who
-          is responsible for meeting them. I have also removed advice and
-          general statements to keep this version short.</p>
