That brings up an interesting question. Is it desirable to have a larger group?
I don't have a simple answer to this, but it's harder and harder to get good interaction with a large group.

Not sure if this is a problem just with my aging hearing and vision, but it's often hard for me to make out all the presentations unless I get front-row seating. Unfortunately, there was no wired front row seating.

With a larger group, there's more of a drive for parallel sessions and all of the attendant logistics. Even with parallel sessions, there are limitations...many of the more popular IETF groups get far too large for meaningful interaction. IDR is still within bounds, but MPLS long ago passed the useful-meeting level. Even if you have read all the drafts and qualify for the first couple of rows, without using some NFL blockers, skipping conversation at the breaks, and quite possibly getting there early, the seats fill up.
