As has already been point out the ability for remote participation at the the last meeting was very poor and (should there have been something major being discussed before being moved to last call) therefore any comments made by those remote members would have be devalued through no fault of their own (apart from not being able to attend the meeting).

How did you conclude this? 

The statement said discussions before and at f2f meetings should have more weight than discussions during last call so that cant be only about attending meetings.Last call discussions should focus  on new issues and not repeat past (i.e past + f2f) discussions or it will be difficult to drive to closure
