If/when we get a functional cross-802 electronic attendance system, it can
at least prevent people from signing in in multiple meetings in the same
slot.  Presumably, one would sign in to a meeting and then leave to go to
another, so that would be of some help by at least eliminating
"double-dipping."  However, unless it is noticed that someone is not
present, or some other means is instituted, it would be difficult to prevent
someone from gaining credit for attending a meeting if they e.g. simply went
back to their room for a nap after signing in, rather than trying to get
credit for two meetings at the same time.
