I think that the RFID experiment has been helpful thus far. Yes, there  
has been a technical glitch or two, but that's to expect from a first  
trial like this in an IETF.

While we're at it, two more technical things would be good to see in  
the future:

	o	a Jabber robot echoing the speaker name to the Jabber room;

	o	(likely more complicated) a text-to-speech robot injecting the  
speaker name
		on the audio-stream.

I noticed that these would be handy when trying to be in one meeting  
and following with one ear the discussions in another concurrent  
session this afternoon.

All in all, however, I think that the initiative of the RFID team has  
been quite excellent.
