AFAIK that's one of the main reasons squash was (again) refused for next summer olympiad: the (subjective) role of the referee is considered to hinder "spectators' enjoyment"…

Too bad this isn't retroactive for currently olympic sports

Oh wow lots of people heading there :) I still need to plan my conference strategy for this year (including Barcelona...). Don't think I'll be making it to Germany though...

Nice. I am a fan of PDF Expert as well, although I've not used the annotations as extensively as you have! It's great for signing documents though.
