It might be useful to give the *complete* list of cities that have been “assessed as suitable”, rather than just those that “have been added to those assessed as suitable”.  For example, several cities where the IETF has met recently - e.g. Prague, Berlin, Vienna, London, Paris - were not mentioned, yet Vancouver (where we have met many times, and are about to meet again) is listed in the "have been added to those assessed as suitable” list.  So the list is a little confusing.

Also, FYI, “Malta” is a country, not a city.  (Presumably you mean “Valletta".)

It’s also a little surprising that no cities in Australia or New Zealand are listed.  (We met in Adelaide in 2000.)  I would expect to see Sydney and Melbourne considered as potential venues, as well as possibly Brisbane, Perth, and Auckland (New Zealand).
