I don't see the point either; I agree that it should be public, and
should be a process that takes enough time to properly consider the
organization in question. If the process satisfied these criteria I
suppose it would be sufficient to make the decision at the end of the
process; if it was at all in doubt, DDs at that point should have
enough information to take action if necesary. [If not, there's little
that the constitution can do to protect us from our own laziness.]
