The original intent was to replace the weekly cross-project meeting with 
a set of ad-hoc meetings in a dedicated channel -- not to have all 
horizontal team meetings there. If we follow that intent, the docs team 
meeting is not a cross-team meeting and doesn't belong there. The docs 
team is an horizontal project team, which means it intersects with 
multiple vertical teams. This is different from a cross-project effort, 
which involves multiple vertical and horizontal team temporarily 
collaborating together on a specific endeavor.
