Perhaps smaller isn't the right word.  Some people were complaining about having easier airline access than Maastricht or Hiroshima afforded.  Applying that as a screen would have meant missing such wonderful venues as these two.  I'd like to keep the focus on the nice job of the Maastricht host.

I am wondering, what is your definition of a small city ? Hiroshima's
population would be the 4th largest city of the US if transplanted to the
US. Or to say it in another way, it is larger than San Jose and San
Francisco combined.
_______________________________________________

Though Hiroshima would rank only 20th considering metro area populations.  But the 20th ranked metro area in the US is Denver, and nobody would consider Denver to be "too small" to host an IETF.

Hiroshima's metro population is about 20 times that of Maastricht.
