Two quick thoughts:
1. People often answer with a one-word response about what they *can't*
eat. Like "Wheat" or "Shellfish", and so naturally the organizers will
err on the side of caution.
2. Putting a joke response in the dietary requirements field of a
conference registration actively makes it harder for the conference
organizers to protect peoples health.
When I'm faced with the dietary requirements field, I just thank my
lucky stars that I'm someone who, if faced with a trace of wheat or a
peanut in their meal, will NOT end up in hospital for the rest of the
conference, and I leave it blank.
