I've noted that having remote participants that chiefly listen,
sometimes give presentations, and sometimes give comments, seems to work
well (with my personal opinion being that having comments be proxied
from the chatroom works better than using the remote call-in facility -
switching from in-room mike to remote mike seems to always take tens of
seconds; worth it for a presentation, not worth it for a short comment).

Having multiple places with in-room conversation (the Shenzen setup)
seems to be an unsolved problem that we shouldn't attempt to solve this
time either.
