I'm certainly not going to discourage discussion prior to the calls but I 
must say that this isn't really accurate. The purpose of first raising an 
issue (as opposed to simply opening it) is simply to allow for the WG to 
vet on whether the issue is valid and should be added to the list of 
issues for the WG to tackle.

While I expect - and experience so far supports this - that most issues 
will be opened, there are several reasons for which an issue might just be 
closed. This includes but is not necessarily limited to being based on a 
misunderstanding or out of scope.

I'm not sure what you hope to achieve with this. If people need more time 
they should just say so when issues are being considered on the call. I'm 
totally fine with postponing the decision to close or open an issue when 
needed but systematically imposing a week delay takes away the possibility 
of quickly disposing of issues for which the WG can agree.
