It would be good to better understand this concern, because we are
facing scenarios where we may not have a choice but to do it in this
manner. What is your specific concerns about the lack of physical TCR
participation, and what would be the best way to remediate them? 

Bear in mind our goal is to continue to involve TCRs remotely in an
active role as much as possible, much in the same way they would
participate in a regular ceremony. They would oversee custody of their
credential, along with having the opportunity to interject and advise
along the way.
