That is, arguably looking like the safest, reasonable line of advice.

However for an organization like the IETF that seeks to meet in a variety of places around the globe, things could get even more challenging if there is a pattern of retaliatory actions by other countries, against visitors from the US.

(This is separate from the existing concern for long-term visitors to the US' question of leaving for a meeting and having problems returning to the US.)

It is fast looking as if the ability to sustain a large and very well-attended network of interconnected remote hubs might become a necessity rather than merely an appealing alternative...
