Aging "Last Call" drafts pile up

While the W3C heads to the WWW9 conference in Amsterdam, visitors to its site can explore a large number of cobwebbed Last Call working drafts on which progress appears to have slowed or ceased.

Though hopefully some progress will be made at meetings in Amsterdam, all of the 'Last Call' drafts listed at the W3C have reached the end of their last call period, some as much as four months ago:

According to the W3C's Process Document, "Working Groups must update a Working Draft every three months." Some of the documents listed above are still within that time frame, but most are past. Many ordinary working drafts are also growing old, though the listing of requirements documents as working drafts may inflate that number.
