I see two potential problems with this:
1) same as with voting, I don't see a reason to restrict this to just 
text conferencing - any remote communication method which can verify the 
identity of the participant could be acceptable.
2) I would like to see something which indicates that the system must 
also meet the requirement for concurrency - if the remote communication 
mechanism breaks, the meeting should not continue any more than if a 
fire alarm went off at a physical meeting location.
