For a draft like this, the differences are minor. We will have a
4-week IETF Last Call instead of a 2-week Working Group Last Call
followed by a 2-week IETF Last Call. There will never be a consensus
call in the VCARDDAV WG for adoption of the document as a WG item, so
it will never have a draft name like draft-ietf-vcarddav-kind-device.
Working group participants and other interested individuals will still
have an opportunity to provide feedback during IETF Last Call. Etc.

After the 21st, the authors will incorporate the feedback we've
received and publish a revised I-D. We will also ask our document
shepherd to provide a write-up to the sponsoring area director. Once
he has done that, the AD will complete his own review and perhaps
provide further comments, which the authors will incorporate, perhaps
resulting in another revised I-D. The AD will then request a 4-week
IETF Last Call. More comments might be made and specialized reviews
(SecDir, Gen-ART, AppsDir) might occur, as a result of which the
authors might submit yet another revised I-D. The AD will then
schedule the document for discussion and balloting by the IESG;
feedback from IESG members might result in yet another revised I-D. If
it is approved for publication by the IESG, it will then go to the RFC
Editor team, which will prepare it for publication as an RFC (further
modifications might result at this point during the "AUTH48" phase,
which is the last chance for the authors to make minor changes).

Anyway, that's the short version of how an AD-sponsored I-D becomes an
RFC. :)
