I have found that a well-managed issues list allows the thrust of the WG 
discussion from day to day to be under the watchful eye of the chairs :) 
who can ensure that the WG makes sufficient progress on the 'difficult' 
issues, while also ticking off enough of the easy ones. Not having each 
WG member forever going on on their favourite topic generally helps in 
this process.

Of course, in the issue generation phase, Bijan and Alan are quite right 
to encourage discussion before an issue is raised.
