Making a label, such as “to-discuss” is a good way to handle this; setting up another project requires maintanence. The key is to promote these issues in advance of the agenda announcement, so that people have a reasonable amount of time to consider.

That said, I’d really rather drive more critical discussion to the issues, and reserve call time for things that actually require discussion. If a solution is proposed on an issue (or a PR), then people should have what they need to +1/-1 or question online. Other things, such as the following:

* #583 Introducing @dir
* #547 Content addressable contexts
* #488 Properties can not be relative IRIs

require discussion to reach a consensus view of how to tackle.
