There are several reasons for the clause.  One of them is, as you 
mentioned above, for the persons in the Working Group to have enough 
time to read to read the proposed policy and discuss about it before 
the meeting.  The objective of having the discussion is so that the 
problems (if there are any) with the proposed policy can be identified.

I suggest looking at a proposed policy as you would if you are 
requested to sign an agreement {1].  A person might, for example, 
wish to seek legal advice before doing that.  A last minute policy 
proposal would not allow a person enough time to carefully consider 
the proposal.
