No.  Leave RFC as is.  It makes sense.

Yes.  The RFC-champion could petition for more time, but it's up to
the WG-chair to decide if it's worth it. (I bet there won't be many of
these)  Either way we present Larry with a bunch of things we would
like to see in perl 6, a bunch of things we wouldn't like to see in
perl 6 and a bunch of things that we couldn't make up our minds on so
he'll have to make up our minds for us. :-)
