I think this would be a very important thing to do.
But I don't have any particular idea on what to say, I'm not familiar
enough with the ITU; except perhaps some recall of the way policy is
discussed in the Internet style, and so suggestions about using online
tools and mailing lists, and allowing everyone (including individuals)
in the physical or virtual room at least for the discussion phase
(adopting results is of course another matter, in a very formal
environment such as a UN agency).
Also Wolfgang's suggestions are good.
If you and him had the time and willingness to prepare something...
please go ahead.
