My only concern is that the ESTA/CBP barriers to entry for IETF
participants who have travel issues to the USA remain. We are in
effect normalising US foreign policy discrimination against IETF
participation F2F

I think you made an entirely rational decision financially, but I
think the underlying reasons we wound up going to Canada by preference
remain.

This was the venue originally booked for IETF 108, which was moved online because of the global pandemic [1].  We have chosen to rebook this venue to support the 20 years of significant community effort to bring an IETF meeting to Spain.
