Because the discussion which results in the proposal is not open to
all of the supposed decision makers.  A certain amount of
out-of-channel chatter is inevitable and probably does oil the wheels,
but it can quickly become a problem if a clique forms and starts to
steer the dirction of the project without all of the contributors
having access to all of the discussion.
