I don't think we need any additional face to face meetings prior to UDS, but
I am a proponent of moving it later in the cycle.  The blocker for this is
that...well, UDS is a blocker for much of our development work.  If we can
resolve problem #6 from my original mail, and not be as dependent on UDS for
doing this work, then we would be free to move it later.
