It's worth noting that the IESG guidance at 
http://www.ietf.org/iesg/statement/interim-meetings.html says the 
attendee list "must" be submitted. And I'm happy to follow that guidance.

Of course, chairs being required to submit blue sheets is not the same 
as attendees being required to sign them.

On the other hand, there doesn't seem to be any reason why a chair would 
be prohibited from collecting names for the blue sheets in whatever way 
is most convenient. (E.g. WebEx logs for virtual interim meetings) If 
that conflicts with an attendee's desire to avoid signing the blue 
sheets, then I suppose the chair's prerogative takes precedence.

Cheers,
