Keep in mind (as the history makes clear) that we certainly have done
this.  While this is a good goal, I think it is more important to have a
good meeting pulled together at the last minute than it is to adhere to
policy in setting up meetings.  

(Yes, I do recognize that in many ways having policy leads to better
meetings.  Nevertheless, my point stands: this is a volunteer group, and
as long as the mailing list exists to pull things together, I don't think
there should be an excessive emphasis on process, because there is a
tendency to beat on people when process isn't followed.)
