protocols that don't meet the need...

A thought I had on the plane last night about the disconnect between the
NANOG and IETF community which leaves protocol development to run open-loop.

Rather than sit back and complain about the results, why not try to
synchronize meeting times. Not necessarily hotels, but within a reasonable
distance of each other so the issue about ROI for the trip can be mitigated.
This will mean that people who regularly attend both will have overlap
issues, but if one meeting every year or two is joint there is an
opportunity for those who can't justify the extra trips to at least have
some feedback to try and close the loop on protocol design.
