      One argument for the restriction is to keep the WG focused on
      producing what they stated they'd produce.  I think it is possible
      for a WG to state intheir charter that they may create related
      Recommendations and Reports, but outside that, I would think it is
      a scope creep problem.<br>

        <p class="MsoNormal">Hi all -<br>
          <br>
          A question came up recently regarding the procedures for
          handling a Draft Report from the WG.  The current OP is not
          very clear on the subject (though it is reasonably clear on
          the handling of Draft Recommendations).  While there is some
          additional guidance on the wiki (<a moz-do-not-send="true"
href="http://kantarainitiative.org/confluence/display/LC/LC+Approval+of+Group+Reports">http://kantarainitiative.org/confluence/display/LC/LC+Approval+of+Group+Reports</a>)
          , voted on in 2011 by the LC, that text conflicts with the OP
          in new and confusing ways.  In particular, it talks about
          sending a Report out for an All-Member Ballot, which doesn't
          happen with Reports.<br>
          <br>
          So, I am proposing to change the text in the OP.<br>
