I disagree. I have sent a separate email on this and I will be happy to
assert my position at the March meeting.
I think it would be a good idea, as we operate under Robert's Rules, to have
the OAM room divide left and right for the OAM transport debate. OAM in
frames on the right, as that is more conservative ;-). That way you can let
one speaker from each side have the floor in rote, rather than having random
speakers. Alternating one from each side would seem fair, and may be limit
each person to two speeches. It will also make straw polls a lot easier.

All of the OAM transport proposals are completely contained within 802.3
and do not rely on implementation specifics. Also, all of the transport
proposals have easily derivable deterministic minimum and maximum
