Registering early should be in everyone's interest, because we
reserve the right to close registrations, at least we are now able
to consider this possibility (and people have witnessed it at DC15,
albeit we could have done better).

And to prevent people from just "vanity registering" and then not
showing up, we should introduce a cost, which need not be monetary
and requires a lot of thinking. But this is a different topic.
