Meeting procedures

To do away beforehand with dispositions that common sense dictates to be non-controversial would have shed some light on the amount of time needed to resolve the remaining issues, and taking the most controversial dispositions off-line immediately would have freed up more time for the dispositions where little discussion was expected to be necessary.

From http://www.itscj.ipsj.or.jp/sc34/open/0933draft-rev2.htm I got the distinct impression the agenda wasn't set up with that prioritisation in mind (and that's what I'm suggesting):
"The convenor thanks those NBs who have informally indicated to him their highest-priority comments and responses. Taking the variety of these into account, and the partial nature of the response, the convenor has decided it would be counter-productive to prescribe an order of discussion in the agenda. Instead NBs will be invited to speak by the convenor in the meeting sessions, and the convenor will thus ensure NBs can enjoy fair representation over the course of the meeting by granting them permission to speak in alphabetical order, making as many passes over the delegations as time allows."

Of course that's a draft agenda, so until the audio recordings are released for public scrutiny we'll have a hard time finding out, won't we?
