Do you have some topics you would like to hear about instead?

Well, it is no problem not to maintain the workshop like a classic
talk but more like a discussion with the others. The only thing, the
moderator (or speaker) needs to take care about is that the audience
has to be able to physically understand what somebody else is saying
(i.e. by forcing people to stand up, speak from the front, having s/o
to repeat etc.).
However, I believe that it is useful to prepare a short intro and
maybe two questions for the audience to start the discussion, but
that's it. So, no objection at all.

Debian can use the rooms on the other days as well, just not en bloc
since other projects would probably like to use them as well.
