I agree with Chris' assertion from a production side (i.e. W3C meetings  
could probably get value from producing many more video feeds, except  
where there is an overriding constraint like bandwidth for TPAC…)

I think it is important to note the other side of the equation - we have  
participants who cannot get the value of video. Which is another point to  
bear in mind, with his excellent reminders that

We really should be. This should be part of chair training (I'll see if it  
fits into my session in June)
