Yeah, but the problem with waiting until we arrive onsite to decide what 
to complain about is that we're not really prepared, and railing on 
multiple topics lowers the quality of the complaints about all of the 
topics we're complaining about.

If we all decide now to complain about the same thing in Vancouver in 
November, we'll have *months* for people to compose rants.

Probably even as haikus. And then the IETF can sell the collection as 
poetry, and use the proceeds for the benefit of London participants 
(whether local or remote).
