if it is indeed true that many ALs cannot participate tomorrow, it would
be good to restrain from taking binding decisions.
As the decisions taken in Lisbon have shown, it can somewhat poison the
atmosphere if those physically present make decisions that don't reflect
the preferences of those absent. For this very reason, IETF working
groups don't vote in physical meetings or teleconferences, they use
mailing lists for polls and the like to ensure that all interested
parties have a chance to participate.

>> concerning the tel conf tomorrow: Many people said they cannot take part (myself offered a different time, one and a half hours earlier). Rudi and myself asked what it is about, as no one proposed an agenda yet. I proposed to discuss all issues online. I guess, the best is, that those who actually have the chance in taking part come up with a proposal for procedure which will be presented to all of us online.
