Yes, if this does not force cancellation of needed WG meetings. It is OK 
if it forces shortening of some meetings by 30 mins, for example.

Reduce by a bit seems OK.

The ability to have grab-and-go lunches, either in the venue or within a 
block or so, *greatly* increases the ability to make the 90 minutes of 
lunch be useful work/social time. Even the typically over-priced hotel 
fare is useful if some of us want to eat quickly so that we have an hour 
or even a half-hour of coordination on some work topic, particularly 
something that came up earlier in the week. (This is probably not an 
issue for Seoul, but should be kept in mind for all meetings under this
