Worthy topics often fail to get traction on an IETF list because 
discussion gets sidetracked, rather than because the topic lacks 
support.  Absent a core of active advocates, there is no source of 
pressure for pursuing the topic.

When a topic shows up repeatedly and mostly (or only) garners positive 
comments and isn't very difficult to pursue, we should press a bit 
harder for its adoption.

So here's a simple proposal that I will ask the rest of you to express 
support for:

      The IAOC should pursue having a local SIM card rental booth at 
future IETF meetings.  The card choices should represent locally 
competitive costs and services.

Yeah or nay?
