Directorates have generally been restricted and do not have
the same degree of open participation as a WG does. So the
directorate mechanism does not work.

WGs are a better means for discussion. However it is also
possible that an area can have an area wide meeting as is
done at IETF meetings. So it is possible to have a general
area meetiing with the specific topic of process problems
or solution proposal discussions without necessarily having
to create a WG.
