It may be all we can get away with, but it's not what we really need, which
is a way to normatively correct errors in the spec after the vote is done.

Going through the whole process again is pretty heavy-weight for correcting
mistakes, if the TC collectively agrees that it's a mistake. Pretending
everything gets caught during the voting is pretty unrealistic as the spec
gets bigger.
