I agree...but unfortunately, Kingdom policy/law may interfere with your
thoughts.  Here in Atlantia, we were required to write into our local
rules/law who gets comped, and it must include at least the King and Queen
and any guests they invite to sit at High Table (if they haven't already
paid for the feast).  Because of this, small groups like the Barony to which
I belong, can't afford to comp all of the cooks and servers.  When I am
helping another cook, as I am this weekend, I either pay and consider it a
contribution to our group...or, as is the case nowadays, I simply pay the
site fee and not eat the feast.  Most of us understand that it has to be
this way.
