Emphasizing that I've never been on IAOC, or on the meeting planning
subcommittee of the IAOC, and was only peripherally involved in internal
discussions about meetings Huawei did and did not host, other people can
comment on whether the right tradeoffs were made (on any particular
meeting, or series of meetings), but I don't have enough information about
what other options were available to comment further.
