I agree with this. In particular, I think the best mindset is that a 
WG's mailing list is the authoritative record. Decisions that happen in 
any sort of meeting are tentative until they find their way to the 
mailing list. (BTW: I think this helps avoid the dependence on having 
great minutes taken by volunteers, and the inevitable disappointment 
that brings.)

Cheers,
