I think these are all true and don't think they are conflicting.

I don't have a strong view if IAB members should be introduced in the 
plenary with their affiliations.  I don't think it is necessary as long as 
their affiliations are publicly available (e.g., on the IAB web page).  I 
don't see any harm if it was done either.

I think short bio's for IESG and IAB members would be nice for the reasons 
you state.  My preference for this would be in addition to a listing of 
name and affiliation.
