[cabfpub] F2F topic proposal - future thoughts

I would like a propose a topic for the F2F: future thoughts.  The concept is to discuss where members may want to see WebPKI go over the next few years.  Given the possible sensitivities, I propose we use a slightly unique discussion process.

Starting at the beginning of the F2F, we have note cards and a closed drop box.  Anyone can add ideas or topics and drop it into the box — no name needed.  At the beginning of the session the box is opened and passed around the room.  Each person draws one card and reads it aloud.  The topics are all recorded and grouped.  Then we discuss them, either in groups or as a whole.

I am proposing this because we have seen a number of references to past meetings where apparently someone said something that was not widely understood to be a future plan.  Rather than have something mentioned in passing, I would prefer to have concepts clearly presented and highlighted so both CAs and Browsers can go home after the meeting and think about them.  By using the card approach it masks who is suggesting what, hopefully allowing a freer set of thoughts.

Do others think this would be valuable?
