Does every possible category of meeting that W3C conducts need to be 
discussed in the Process document?  Workshops belong in the process 
document because they can play a  particular role in the creation of new 
work in W3C.  But I don't think that implies that W3C can't put on other 
events.   The Process is a pain to change.  Everything doesn't need to 
be in there.  It should be for the big things about how the organization 
runs.

Like having enough time to get visas or travel approval and reasonable 
air fares for formal WG meetings is important enough to guarantee in the 
process.  But, organizing a regional meeting to solicit input from the 
larger community somewhere likely isn't.
