Worldcon preliminary programming etiquette, a poll

So I have a preliminary programming schedule from Worldcon. I've already declined one panel item, but there are two others that on reflection I'm not sure about. Thus, I ask you all: if you were either running programming, or going to a con, what would you want me to do?

Poll #1427778 Worldcon preliminary programming etiquette
This poll is closed.

If my reaction to a panel is, "I'm not sure why I'm on this, but I imagine I could dreg up something to say," there are four people total on the panel, and it is about responses to books, should I decline to be on it?

Yes
23(63.9%)
No

If my reaction to a panel is, "I feel a bit out of my league on this topic," I am the moderator, and it is about race and discussions thereof, should I decline to be on it?
