I agree that attendance is not required, but it can help some discussions. 

Given the logistical differences it would be much easier to schedule NANOG
into a nearby hotel than to try to move the IETF around. For example this
time if NANOG had been a month later it would have been in the same city yet
different hotels. I understand that synchronized meetings it not trivial,
but it is worth considering.

The IETF apparently has some major scheduling problems as it is, because
are very few venues that can handle the number of people that show up
have the right mix of large rooms and many smaller break-out rooms.
Trying to get
it into a hotel opposite a NANOG would just exacerbate the problem.

And there's nothing stopping NANOG types from joining an IETF working
group and
participating via e-mail - there's a large number of people who have
to the IETF process and never actually been sighted at an IETF meeting.
