Actually, with the exception of the Beijing meeting where the hotel - not us - posted guards to keep non-badge holders out (and apparently to check id against badges), we don't actually enforce this much.  I can think of a number of recent IETFs where "guests" have sat in for a short while in various conversations and WG meetings without being officially registered.  

Even if we did enforce the badging requirement - the payment of the registration fee does not make this a non-public meeting.  ANYONE can attend.
