I agree, and I was talking with some UK people who felt the same way... 
it is hard to get a good venue in some cases because they are reserved a 
full year in advance.

Perhaps in the deliberations about next year's wikimania, we should 
ponder 2007 and 2008 simultaneously, since the choices are not fully 
independent, given our desire for ongoing geographical diversity.
