Yes to observers ..
And I agree with Keith Davidson that we should be allowing observers as much as possible ..
I also agree with Paul regarding the room set-up .. U-shape (option a.) is better for a working session with observers whereas facing the audience (options b./c.) is better for reporting back or having an interactive discussion ..

FWIW, the working meeting on Friday of the ICANN meeting will be U-shaped, with audience in classroom style.

This I think is like the setup for the IANA transition session during the ICANN London meeting. I think the seating was limited to 15-20 in that case, but we may squeeze the whole ICG if we need to.
Thanks for the input.
