All the more reason to save duplication of that effort.

I don't need loyalty programs to be a factor in picking venues, but if 
things are going to be odd (e.g. meeting rates don't earn points), we 
should be told up front.  And this is not about digging into the rules 
for all the different programs - it's about asking one more question 
once the IAOC decides we're going to a particular hotel.
