Thanks for catching this, Martin, and for fixing it, Leandro.

Perhaps we should create the www.debconf11.debconf.org A record (or a
CNAME) as well (and add the appropriate HTTP 302 redirect back to the
correct hostname).

It irks me to even recommend this, but I know there are a lot of people
who seem to believe that you have to type "www" to get to a web site;
given that we can make things work for those (confused) people as well,
we probably should.

Yes, I agree. I've seen this many, many times.
