I'm beginning to think you've thought about this way more than I  
have. :-)

What about:

1) Author requests the Chair to add the Last Call discussion to the  
Agenda. This may be done at a meeting, or simply by asking the Chair  
directly, via XMPP or email. (One assumes the Author can find the  
Chair, of course).

2) Council discuss Last Call, and Author SHOULD show up to that  

3) After the Last Call is over, a futher meeting will occur to  
discuss advancement. At this point, Author MUST show up.
