Then the RFP for the meeting needs to be more specific with some basic SLAs
that result in a smaller bill if not met.

underlying problems

  o no hotel believe that we'll actually be significantly high use.  
    they simply can not conceive of it.  ietf, apricot, ... have
    seen this time and time again

  o the hotel does not manage the network, so you have two comms hops
    to anyone who can do anything.  and anyway, they are not going to
    provision more bandwidth

but the problems of which i spoke were the meeting network.  which we
do supposedly control.
