Well speech at IETF isn't free - it comes at the cost of 650 USD (advance registration) or a bit more on the door. If random locals want to come and make some kind of statement at IETF then all they have to do is come and do an on the door registration (at a fee of course) and make their statement at the microphone. 

Alternatively they could do it for free from the jabber room!

I hardly think the badge check is an effective stop to that.

There might be many unspoken objections, e.g. that a certain kind of
host might want to keep random locals out of what could be perceived as
a free speech zone.
