DDs have to have a level of oversight over the committee. This
includes being aware of the rationale behind decisions as well as the
decision making process which leads up to them. Cases where decisions
are not made are as important as cases where they are. Members of the
committee who are concerned about that level of oversight probably
shouldn't be on the committee.

It's fine to make distribution of the internal discussion list
non-automatic, but it needs to be viewable. It's also seems
appropriate if the internal discussion list is moderated or restricted
to ctte members.
