neither side's position seems unreasonable from their own point of view: 
the LLC needs to make executive decisions and sometimes these will be 
problematic. Conversely, the IETF community has an expectation that 
there's engagement about policy changes before they happen.

We're all hostage to our own constraints.

The challenge now is to resolve this, i.e. how to discuss it without 
prejudice and come up with something that's workable within the 
financial constraints of the LLC while still being compatible with 
community process.
