Hi Rifaat,

I suggest looking at it from a different perspective.  A person who 
is new to the IETF attends a working group session held at some 
exotic location.  There are the usual active participants debating 
during the session.  There isn't any significant progress on the 
issue(s) in his/her opinion.  Would he/she commit more time to engage 
in that working group?
