Sadly, I tend to agree.  I also suggest that, whenever that
period seems to expire at the chosen location(s) we will be
dealing with hybrid meetings with very high numbers of remote
participants in addition to whatever is determined to be the
minimum of in-person ones.  Based on non-IETF experience, such
meetings are much more difficult to run successfully and have do
successful work than than [almost[ all f2f or [almost] all
remote/online ones, so I hope planning starts well in advance
rather than only after a decision is made to try a nominally f2f
