I agree with you but this is tricky in Janson.  Especially for people in the
centre block.  It is very hard to squeeze out of the long row of seats without
inconveniencing everyone between you and the aisle.  I think asking people to
get out to ask questions will lead to an impolite premature exodus during the
Q&A sessions of the talks.

Two microphone stands for questions, one in each aisle, may mitigate (halve?)
the problem, but I'm not sure it won't happen...

But does it suck more than a lot of noisy exits?
