I would think that this should be even easier because, unless
someone can think of a reason to not do so, the registration
code for on-site registrations should simply work in Meetecho.
Putting you through a second registration/ signup procedure when
you are already registered for the meeting (and, in your case
but less in Spencer's use of in-room Meetecho was slide viewer,
likely in a hurry) seems like unreasonable bureaucracy. If we
need to keep a distinction between on-site and off-site remote
participants, that distinction should be embedded into the
registration codes, not require the user to pretend to be two
people (which would actually distort the statistics).

This is just an anecdote, but today I got to a room that was
too crowded (I was late because of another obligation).
Unwilling to crawl over people, since I was the late one, I
went back into the hall. In previous meetings I used meetecho
to follow along in this case, but since I hadn't registered it
was a little troublesome. I just used the audio, and it's no
big deal, but it might be a useful illustration of one bit of
friction that comes because of the remote registration thing
(unless everyone registered on-site automatically gets a
remote registration too, maybe conveniently printed on the
badge or something).
Note that I am _not_ saying this proves anything about whether
registration is a good or bad idea or whatever. I only
mention it as another anecdote (and of course, in one sense
the plural of "anecdote" is too "data").
