Consider it a transfer of self-importance from me to the Council. I
don't want to be a bottleneck and I would rather that we have a public
process for requesting Last Calls (and Calls for Experience) than to
have the process be "ping stpeter". That said, I'm not wedded to the
two-step process I outlined above -- the Council *could* issue a Last
Call in the meeting at which a XEP author makes the request, or it could
decide to think about it for a week and then issue the Last Call at its
next meeting.
