Dude, the committee is meant to do whatever it takes to work with it's
members, not to demand its members work in the way that's most convenient

That's what you just said, so presumably we agree, but one of those
ways that's convenient for lots of people is being available for face
to face discussions. If that weren't true, conferences wouldn't be as
cool as they are.
