I'd been wondering that too.  Contrary to popular belief, developers
surely aren't robots who can be continuously productive without
downtime, particularly in what may be stressful discussions involving
robust debate.  Some kind of break in the middle would be wise so that
the discussions at the end of each day don't end up being pro forma
affairs that people are trying to rush through in order to rest.
