I don't believe that interpretation is consistent with those remarks. Using
your interpretation, it would mean that WG meetings are distinct from Forum
meetings, therefore Amazon is hosting (separately) the meeting of the Forum
and the meeting of individual WGs.

This applies to both physical meetings, such as the upcoming F2F, and to
teleconferences. Similarly, I'm surprise you would advocate for such an
interpretation, given your previously expressed concerns with respects to
the IP Policy, and given the issues around reliably providing minutes for
WG meetings to the Public List (as required under 5.2(a) and supported by
the definitions on Page 13 as being unambiguously public@cabforum.org )
