Yes, that's fine, I'm not saying you did.

My point was that it was the Efficient Board Meetings resolution which
helped abolish the _previous_ practice of waiting for guests to type
their names.  I was arguing that that practice shouldn't be restored.

There's no need for it to be in a formal resolution if it's going to
happen anyway.
