   * There is, as far as I know, no precedent for an
   IETF-related body to announce a public comment period on a
   document, make a series of "interim decisions" and announce
   them five days before the end of that period, and then
   leave the comment period termination date in place rather
   than restarting the review on the revised document.
For a purely practical point of view:  When I'm asked to
review a document,
and before I start, the author realizes that a section needs
to be modified, then this is something I'd like to know.  That
saves me the time to review
something that is known to be changed anyway.

Sure.  And the period of time you get to make the review starts
when you get the changed version.   That is why I believe this
review period is, in practice, only five days long.

I'd think it is still 30 days.  N changes were proposed, on comments
made in the first days, it was clear that one of them wasn't a good
idea, so it was dropped.  No review is necessary for that, for the
other N-1 changes, there is still a 30 day period ongoing.

Belgium: an unsolvable problem, discussed in endless meetings, with no
         hope for a solution, where everybody still lives happily.
