The author(s) of a proposal can submit revisions at any point in the  
process right up until the end of last call.  As long as those  
revisions make it to PPML with enough time for the community to  
review them, and as long as the proposal continues to hold consensus  
after those revisions are made, then the proposal will likely be sent  
to the BoT with those revisions.  The AC has to judge whether the  
community had enough time to review any revisions, and whether the  
proposal still enjoys the support of the community.

In this case, during the meeting there seemed to be some question as  
to whether certain statements in the proposal (in particular, some  
implementation details) belonged in the proposal, the authors have  
chosen to remove or alter those statements during Last Call.  My  
understanding is that they intend to get their revisions out to the  
list this week, which should be enough time for the community to  
review and decide whether they still think the proposal is  
appropriate for the NRPM.
