I see your point, however what about those parts of the Federation that exist outside of that one sector? You could theorize that the entire Membership area of the Federation is enclosed within a single sector, but I would find it odd that Kirk's sector held all

a hundred and fourteen delegates ... thirty two of them ambassadors
In addition to people from the Federation, hopefully Coridan itself would have had representatives at the council, and maybe other peoples from outside the Federation who had perspective on Coridan's admissions.
This might be why the meeting was being held on a "neutral planetoid."
