I've found that newcomers are much more likely to be taken favorably if 
they're well-prepared.

Unfortunately, this is difficult enough to do for a new working group, 
even more difficult for one that's been around for awhile.

If we'd like newcomers to be well-prepared to work in working groups, 
maybe the working group should put together a set of background info (at 
the start of the WG), and maintain a set of decisions already 
more-or-less taken and reasons why (though there might not actually be 
consensus on the reasons).

Maybe IETF meetings should have multiple sessions for each established 
WG - the first one a "catch up" session that presents and explains the 
work done to date, at which no decisions will be taken and which is 
optional for experienced attendees.
