Once one gets unmuted and comment given, is the Chair muting back the 
commenter?  Or is the commenter muting herself?

Or is it that once commenter gets unmuted one keeps that unmute forever?

This is important to know for the remote commenter to avoid create echo.

(in typical audioconf it is the commenter who mutes self, so once she 
learns that the Chair takes care of it s/he must be sure s/he has 
nothing to do to avoid echo).

If it is the Chair who controls all mute/unmute then how does the 
commenter request to talk?  Is it it a "raise hand" button?  Is the 
Chair's "mute commenter" button cancel a "raise hand"?  Must the 
commenter "low hand"?  Or is the Chair's "mute" automatically "low 
hand"?  Can a commenter keep a "raise hand" permanently?
