Hmmm... Maybe it does, maybe it doesn't.  Keeping the quality people on 
the net on the net and able to keep the net humming is definitely, in
my opinion, a Network Issue requiring Coordination, under the current
circumstances.  As such, I think this is at least a gray area.  Besides,
NANOG is a community.  NANOG BOFs cover things that may or may not be
within the NANOG charter, but which impact the NANOG community.  As
such,
I think it's entirely appropriate to a BOF.
