1. In terms of rationale, I am reminded of Kinky Freedman's slogan, when
running for Governor or Texas: "Why Not?"
Well, the IETF rocks, but I didn't know it it rocks and rolls.
And we usually make some effort at having reasons for changing running systems.
Something about stability and utility...
So, there have been plenty of postings noting the core, conceptual problem with
concentrating BOFs together: It creates a kind of attendance pattern sampling
In any event, the 'why not' logic suggests trying a different scheduling
configuration for every meeting, since there is essentially an infinite variety
of combinations. So why not try them all?
