Entirely true, and I retract the sentence beginning 'Whatever' and
apologise to Professor Hendler and to the group for working from memory

quotes from the 'Role of the Group Chair' document.

Indeed.  Particularly in [1], I really cannot see Professor Hendler
facilitating consensus in the group --- rather, accentuating the strife.
