A quick note on being more remote: If you're inside or very close to a
major city, there is a class of people that will just stay in a nearby
hotel and commute to the event.

This is also the class of people that would otherwise spend a lot of
resources and energy building nice camps

There comes a point when the cost in monetary and goodwill terms (i.e.
Security Guards) gets to be just too much to make it worth it.

If the Dutch are organizing it and finding the funding, it's still a
dutch camp. Just across the border in Germany should not be tossed out
entirely as an option, especially when you'd have people with deeper
administrative connections in the CCC who can assist with any heavy lifting.
