I would add that ARIN currently has fairly robust remote participation 
capabilities, so travel itself shouldn't be a big barrier to 
participation.  However, even with remote participation you still need 
to be available and participate on a timetable that is not of your 
choosing or necessarily convenient.  Whereas such a pooling mechanism 
would allow much more asynchronous participation.
