Quick question - how can one register without providing a name? I may
be ignorant here, but isn't the point of registration to say - I am so
and so, and I am representing (myself, my company, my organisation)?
So how can I register without providing a name of some sort? And if
I'm pre-registered, how can they know that I am who I say I am without
some sort of ID? I can walk in and say I'm Jacqueline Morris and get
that pass, and when the real Jacqueline Morris comes, what happens
then?
And in a face to face meeting, how can one remain anonymous, unless
wearing a mask at all times?

Yes, at the Wellington meeting, the engineer who was later handing
out "Bert" badges was denied entry when he asked to register without
providing a name.  I don't think that should be ICANN policy.
