While I always do slides to explain the idea IETF has no space to post it
before the meeting along with draft. Perhaps each draft should list private
URL with slides for those interested to look at them instead or as add-on
to the draft lecture itself ? Should we perhaps enhance IETF submission a
bit to optionally accommodate pdf slides with the draft and augment IETF
tools repo to provide link to those if present ?

Sending it to chairs to be posted before the meeting is already too late.

I agree slides are much lower bar then video and could be equally or even
more helpful.
