Probably not, of course, because as you said not everyone can
attend. But, actually, live discussions usually make things progress
way faster than mail fl^W discussions or IRC meetings. And compromises
are very much easier to reach, of course.
Then these discussions/proposals have of course to be re-discussed
more widely in the community, to give those who cannot attend a chance
to give their advice.
All this is of course completely trivial, by the way..:-)
