Request for Comments on Examination Time Goals

After final review trending idea

I work in relatively simple technologies for small inventors. The after final process has become somewhat useless. The Examiner's do not receive sufficient time to adequately review an after final response and the Examiner's typically provide a pro forma response that does not help advance prosecution. This leaves the small inventor with basically one chance to provide a substantive response before they must either file an RCE or appeal.
