Scott, it does interfere with the way we create standards,
because it gets in the way of effective attendance.   And the
IESG generally, and the IETF Chair in particular, have been
given (or assumed) the authority and responsibility for
managing the Secretariat.   If that isn't feasible, or they
are too overloaded to do that task well, it seems to me that
the topic intrudes into this WG.
