I don't know really know what the right solutions is - in some other meetings I participate in we have tried to alloc the meetings so the percentage of time they are really bad for a certain set of participates corresponds roughly to the percentage of representation from that group.

As an aside, I did some work a while back in async teleconferences (with verbol.com ) embedded in google wave. 
Folks who were asleep when the live call ran were at less of a disadvantage, because they could listen through the playlist
and insert their comments as the conversation progressed. These *spoken* comments became a side track to the recording.
Original participants were encouraged to go back and listen to new comments in their context.

The net result took a bit of getting used to, but it did mean that _everyone_ got their say over the period of about 48 hours.

This used a web embedded audio plugin - and would have used webRTC if it had existed back then - so it is 
representative of the sort of innovative things webRTC may encourage.

Speaking _entirely_ for myself and not representing verbol.com in any way....
