5. I'd like to review and discuss our current policy on press
interaction during workshops and calls.
    [Note: This has been triggered by recent actual enforcement of this
policy for our calls]
   - Our current policy is that we do not permit press during calls and
workshops for the following reasons:
        - Participants are expected to interact more openly once 'off
the record'
        - Corporate policies sometimes discourage employees from giving
interviews / statements to the press,
           i.e., press presence may mean that some participants are no
longer able to speak up
   - Press is still free to:
        - Read mailing lists and minutes
        - Read drafts and other published documents
        - Talk with individual participants or the chairs if the
participants/chairs are willing to do so
   - As one tool to enforce this policy during our calls, we decided to
drop callers that are unwilling to identify themselves.
