I talked to Samuele and this was our conclusion also. If you could try 
to find an updated angle
with some prepared discussion topics we would recommend to have this as 
a preannounced
Open Space session during day 1.

The abstracts (adjusted with the discussion topics) would be published 
on the Open Space part of the
EP 2007 wiki.

How does this sound?
