I agree with this.  while I think we should follow maximally open 
process for email based decisions, including 4 week review periods, and 
perhaps a form of voting (if we can figure out how to do that fairly), 
i think we need a different process for decisions that need to me made 
during a prepcom or similar event.

and while it would be good to have all our statements ready a month in 
advance for process, i don't think it is possible to anticipate the 
needs that far in advance.
