if you register for a meeting your personal info (e-mail address
mostly) won't be sold/used/harvested by someone for purposes other
than what you think you signed up for.
the fact that you signed up for the meeting is publicly available so
that we don't sell mailing lists to spammers seems sort of irrelevant.
This is the way things are *now*. Discussion of a privacy statement may lead to
changes, such as keeping the attendee list confidential, and destroying it on
the Monday following the meeting.
I personally don't care if the whole world knows I've been to an IETF meeting,
but the decision to publish the list on the website has privacy consequences.
