Further topics I find relevant:

* funding for travel grants
* broadening of participation: how can we convince the organizations and 
companies that are relevant for the IG related WSIS follow up to attend 
the IGF? (As an example, would it not be nice to have a panel with those 
companies/providers that are actually involved in setting the 
interconnection prices?)
* the governments' attitude towards the forum: it is a problem if 
governments only listen but don't participate or commit themselves.
* workshop modalities: we should encourage the secretariat to maintain 
last year's selection procedure with everybody being invited to suggest 
themes and panelists for workshops, and all workshops are accepted as 
long as there is enough capacity.
