I agree with this.  I guess I would like the official foundation policy
on this to be:

        "It's cheaper to hold it in Europe, but if you've got a great
        location and tons of funding, we're willing to have it

Limit the location based on the ability of the organizing committee to
come up with a proposal for getting everyone there rather than where it
has been before.

Now, that should include other practical things like Visas I agree, but
that wasn't as much fun to write in a slogan :)
