Working Groups are free, and it's even recommended, to request review
from interested parties as early as useful, review from horizontal re-
view groups such as WAI, I18N, and QA in particular. Working Groups
are further expected to ensure that organizations represented in the
group have completed their review of the document before going to last
call. There are also many documents that are supposed to help here,
many issues can be resolved early following recommendations in various
documents such as W3C's Manual of Style, the Character Model, various
TAG findings, RFC 3552, W3C's QA Specification Guidelines and so on,
for those you don't even need external reality checks.

If you want to try Big Bang integration at Last Call instead, you get,
well, a Big Bang. No surprises there. It's difficult to believe that
Working Groups need to be made aware of this, or, worse, that getting
to Recommendation faster needs to be enforced at some level outside
the individual Working Groups.
