hmmm… weird.

We said the same. See my paragraphs on booking and visa.

Yup it's why I put subjective. Agreed again. ;)

yes. :) 
been there done that, multiple times. written also invitation letters for WG F2F. 

The only thing where we **might** have a disagreement is the "No, we want the membership to be able to participate in the work of the organization."

Membership and W3C staff are important, but I would put always the Web before that. And I thought the discussion was about meetingS and not only Workshops.
