totally. and those people will work anyway ;-)

Maybe the work will be arriving and relaxing traveling, listen to Debian Day 
talks, have some chats. Maybe the work will be coding. Maybe they'll sit in th 
auditorium, maybe the'll sit in the hacklab, and maybe, even somewhere else!!

A $workplan during DebCamp also doesnt mean the same thing for different 
people :-) And anyway, I totally agree that we should make it clear that there 
is no workplan requirement for DebianDay and that attendence (how/whereever, 
see above) is appreciated!
