What is an "essentially complete" Space Station?

How NASA Plans to Retire the Shuttle, (letter from Mike Griffin) NY Times

"We have carefully reconsidered the station assembly sequence, and if we use the shuttle fleet in a disciplined, measured fashion over the next five years, we can essentially complete that assembly. We can meet our obligations to our international partners and effect a transition to the shuttle's successor in a planned, orderly fashion."

Editor's note: "essentially complete" ?
