I think that the internal discussions should be kept private to
the soc-ctte at least as long as no decision is made. As decisions made
by the comitee will probably quite often involve social behaviour of DDs
I think it's problematic if all DDs can read the internal discussions of
the comitee members. I believe that the comitee members should be able
to discussion various options without the fear that something could be
publicized (probably resulting in a flamewar) before even a discussion
in the comitee is made.

After a decision is made I think it's less problematic to make the
discussion available to all DDs. But still there is the problem, that
offending behaviour would be exposed to all DDs.
