One fairly obvious corollary to this is that in all likelihood the  
number of people who would purchase duplicate shirts in order to  
inappropriately claim that they were at IETF 74 is probably quite  
small.   Much smaller than the number who were there and just didn't  
get one in their size (e.g., me) or who weren't there, don't  
particularly want to claim to have been there, but like the shirt and  
the message on the shirt and would like to be able to wear it around  
so that it might stimulate the occasional discourse on the urgency of  
IPv6 deployment.

Personally, I'd just put it up on CafePress, direct the revenue stream  
back to the IETF, and see what happens.   Anything cleverer than that  
seems like a waste of effort to me.
