Evan, you say "Less opportunity for backroom/hallway off-the-record arm-twisting (it won't be eliminated, but it won't be encouraged either)"
But as companies have discovered over the past couple of years of extensive virtual work, face-to-face interactions have some upsides which virtual meetings simply don't replicate. Yes, there is more opportunity for off-the-record arm-twisting. But any motivated, half way competent, lobbyist can (as you suggest but discount) manage to accomplish that anyway.
However, the casual, serendipitous chats, which are what create and cement effective group efforts, simply don't happen. With serious negative impacts all around. Including on various efforts near and dear to your heart. I certainly noticed the impact on my own efforts these past two years without in-person meetings.
