That sentence is out of step with some of the AUTH48 changes I have seen over the years. In some cases, where small but real technical changes that appeared at the last minute, authors have been told by the sponsoring ADs to *not* turn in another Internet Draft, but to put the changes in AUTH48. Doing this inherently short-circuits community review, but has the not-insignificant advantage of expediency for technical changes that authors and ADs consider minor.
