Education during governance

I was facilitating a governance meeting where there was a clear proposal on the table related to budget.  As can be seen pretty clearly from my other posts here, budget is not a simple topic.   Therefore, it's no surprise that one of the attendees had a lot of general questions about budgeting in Holacracy.  This resulted in questions during the Clarifying Questions round that were not directly related to the proposal.  As facilitator, I redirected the line of questioning to be about the specific proposal.  In retrospect, it seemed like I could have taken a timeout and tried to explain the concept, but I think that likely would have taken non-trivial amount of time.

What's a facilitator to do?
