It just doesn't make sense to me to meet in places that are that hard
to reach. I've skipped San Diego for exactly this reason in the past
and I'm not sure I'll be going to Hiroshima.
The fact that there is very little information coming out about how
this decision was reached and some of it has been of questionable
quality ("MAYBE 3 venues big enough", I listed 4 so with Maastricht
that's 5; "reason for meeting during European holiday season lost in
the mists of time") doesn't help.
The Netherlands is not
a large country and it's not far from a lot of places in continental
However, the Netherlands only has a single airport with decent
connections and ground transportation. For those of us traveling to
IETF-78 from within Europe it's still doable (probably have to
sacrifice the friday afternoon sessions, though) but I'm glad I don't
have to fly in from the US west coast or Asia.
