If they have, I expect they’d be quickly eliminated. All foreign visitors have to get a visa to visit India and the application process is painful. Former colleagues have spent a day waiting in the queue at the embassy to hand in their paperwork and then do that all over again to pick up the visa.

Visa difficulties have caused the IETF to stop meeting in the USA. So it wouldn’t make sense to replace that with meetings in another country that has worse visa hassles.
