My only worry is with the hacklabs, where we have:
* D-2632A: ~40
* Sale de socialisation (D-2660): ~15
* Jardin: ~100 (highly depends on where/how people sit)
* probably one of E2205 or E2212 (your plan says "Conférences et espace de travail") ~35-40

Usually you can't really pack hacklabs like you would pack classrooms
(in a typical hacklab, people try not to sit too close to each other).

How hard would it be to go with the current plan and add a couple of
rooms during the early days of debconf if we discover that the hacklab
capacity needs were underestimated? If it's going to be a problem, maybe
it's better to just add a couple of classrooms, that will always be
useful to spread the load and provide more space for impromptu BOFs.
