Mary,

I think the question here was about "policing" rather that specific 
language in the contract. In other words, did anyone get stopped,
challenged, frisked or waterboarded for carrying in food? [:=)]
We didn't hear about any such incidents, and for your specific meeting
the recommendation would probably have been "keep a low profile"
per the host's suggestion.

I have been spending some time in Japan following the Taipei meeting,
and part of that involves attending another conference. I discovered
that the thermostats in the meeting rooms were set to 27C which I 
consider inhumane. The good news is that no "locks" were set so I
quickly changed the setting to a more tolerable 21C and kept my 
fingers crossed until someone would discover this and change it back.
I would certainly want to have the ability to specify "normal" 
temperature in future contracts without wishing to get into a debate
about what that means here.

Ole
