It's true (that it's a shame) of course. The problem is that the mandate of this
group cannot be achieved unless there is trust and a sense of fair play, and
consensus on some basic operating procedures. Until we know how the chair
situation is handled, trust, etc. cannot exist. So these preliminaries are not a
waste of time, they are necessary parts of getting underway

This would be acceptable to me.
