+1 !
I was advocating ending at mid-day on sunday because I'm flying back to
France on sunday evening. It doesn't necessarily mean parting at noon sharp,
it can be after lunch or early afternoon.
We probably need this extra half-day, and like Tom, I have good experiences
with meetings on 1,5 days.

Those attending DC2010 probably won't mind starting early, so we have to
investigate with those planning to arrive only on saturday morning.
