We had a huge problem in the Conference 2007 in
Barcelona as more than 1000 people registered for the conference and
at the end there were no more than 250 people appeared. ...
We should have a registration that e.g. charges 5 € or 10 € and includes
a t-shirt with it. We had that for e.g. Orvieto

Yes, the idea behind the nominal participation fee in Orvieto (at the OOoCon, actually) was to limit fake registrations. While we were rather flexible about it (in some cases transferring money would have cost more than this symbolic fee), it helped in having accurate participants figures.

But I wouldn't mix the two problems, i.e., avoiding that people register for a conference and then, without notice, don't show up and avoiding that random people have a say in deciding where the conference is held.
