I share this preference... But many DDs don't. Possibly we could offer
sponsored lodging/food to anybody arriving on Friday 6 (if DebianDay
is moved to Saturday 7) without requiring any sort of workplan,
explicitly inviting them to take part of DebianDay, but without mixing
it with DebConf?

No, if it were a waste of time, we would just stop holding DebianDay,
period. It is an important outreach event, and I think it has produced
good results.

While it is also not the same as DebCamp, DebCamp work pace can be
held while there is a DebianDay going on, so we have often seen it as
compatible. Now that you point to DC11's dates, I guess this should
have been the explicit case - It is a bit contradictory to me to say
"DebConf begins / Debian Day / DebConf participants are encouraged to
arrive this day" - If DebConf begins that day, participants should
have been encouraged to arrive a day earlier, right? :)
