I never cease to be amazed at IETF participants' willingness to demand more and more free services from event organizers.

That said, I would certainly find it useful to have cheap SIM cards easily available, but probably only if accompanied by English language support.  It wouldn't necessarily have to be at the conference site.  A pointer to a nearby store or one at the local airport would probably be sufficient.
