Personally I am ok with the badge checking (as form of access control to a non-public resource (meeting, terminal rooms)) but I can understand some of related questions regarding who modifies ietf operation.

Regarding freeriders: agree that would be a big deal. But I am not aware of any incident of that. So I would like to hear more about such incidents and extend (even anecdotal) before considering anything for this reason. 

For bluesheets automation: Didn't we have the RFID experiment in Hiroshima Unfortunately at that time with dual blue sheet and rfid. To replace by rfid may still be a way. But thinking about both methods: if a person wants to avoid blue sheets either method he could do that without detection. And even easier: we have all slides, audio stream and jabber online available, is the blue sheet really still helpful regarding patent trolls?
