Hi Alia,

Our interpretation of the word "culture" is different.  I'll use the 
"IETF culture" to mean social behavior of IETF participants (or 
attendees) as a group.  The mission is take on a problem and reach a 
conclusion within the constraints documented as IETF procedures.  If 
I had to look at the next 30 years I would leave the constraints open 
for discussion instead of setting a "must not change".
