I think that's reasonable, but there's a contradiction in the way 
you've proposed to address defining those objectives. On one hand, you 
assert this needs to be done in person. On the other, when I tell you 
it's not realistic for me to be able to make it to Hamburg, you say I 
can call in.  If we accept your first point, then my role in the 
discussion becomes marginal.

E.g. I go back to my original point: is it really necessary to tie 
discussion of the metadata objectives to a face-to-face? Or can those 
be separate issues?
