About the froscon idea: I think it pulls away some attention from Arch if there are too many other things to do, and it's less "cousy" but you get a lot of advantages (logistics taken care of, maybe some interested people stopping by).
True. However at FrOSCon and FOSDEM there were dev rooms specifically for talks about one project (e.g. PHP room, KDE room), so with a dedicated Arch room for talks this can be just fine (and we get extra visitors from the main conference :-P).
What makes an Archcon an archcon, and not "arch devs present at conference $foo" is mostly Arch talks. lots of Arch talks, but I think that won't be an issue. If every dev I'v met so far at froscon/fosdem gives 1 presentation, you can easily fill 2 days :)
I don't know what you're referring to with the froscon organising complaints though. Maybe Roman's issues with the visa, but that's a problem with the german embassy, not froscon (afaik).
actually it's froscon's team slowness that was the main problem
