I agree with most points discussed in this thread. I'll add that as someone who enjoys to attend the tournament, I like to try to visit both host cities and see as many teams as possible, but this year it was not easy to do and I only went to Helsinki. I can understand why co hosting could be the way to go for some countries (Austria/Hungary or Italy/Slovenia would be fine, or why not London/Paris if you want to think out of the box), but Finland and Sweden are certainly able to host the tournament alone (I don't undersand the Germany/France bid for 2017 either. Germany is the last country to need a co host).

Regarding the quarterfinals being played within the same pool, I agree this shouldn't happen. If travel is an issue, just play all four games in the main venue like they did in 2009 and 2011. This way fans also have the opportunity to attend all four games.
