That depends whether you rely on the conference for income. The net effect is, anyway, the
same so this seems to be splitting hairs.

In fact I meant that to achieve that same net revenues, each €1 given as a subsidy to one
delegate must be charged to a paying user. In a conference with five tracks this could add
20-25% to the ticket price.
