remove 22-26?!? I'm confused. You supported David and he thought we were 
downplaying the Evergreen proposal too much. He wants to keep it in play 
unless the WGs indicate that it doesn't help for the LS track. Do you 
believe that the needs of the Living Standards are met by the Process 
modifications proposed in Slides 9-15?

The patent policy ones are OK, but most AC reps will defer to their lawyers, so until PSIG weighs in, I'm not sure these are worth calling out for the AC.    The Improving the Process questions are pretty overwhelming even for someone who has followed this closely, and I don't have much hope you'll get much useful input from the AC unless you structure the Q&A.  Maybe ask for a show of hands or an IRC straw poll, don't invite people to come to the mic and ask open ended questions or pontificate.

Still thinking that one. I concur with you that the presentation is 
overwhelming for an AC Rep who didn't follow the conversation in the 
past. But I doubt they can answer all of those questions in the session, 
especially without understanding the dependencies between the questions 
and their impact on the Patent Policy. At best, they'll be able to 
(hopefully) confirm that the direction is the right one (ie modify the
