+1

The exercise of developing a listing of participant costs, local facilities, and 
the like, and then posting it at the time the venue is announced (and probably 
updating it 3 months before the event) could be quite helpful for public 
awareness and dialogue.

I suggest that there be some effort to have total costs to an attendee be a 
table, itself.

One axis should have 3 entries: Origination from most popular Asian, North 
American, and European IETF source regions.  This factors in cost variations in 
travel and currency.  The other access should be two-, three- and four-star 
hotel, including distance from the venue.  Presumably the 4-star will be the 
conference venue.
