And even at a moderate increase over your figures, they'd be coming in
well under-budget based on previous years :-)

Like I said, we've been burnt before with "experiments" that turned
into unalterable assumptions for every later year, and I'm keen that
we avoid that here.

ApacheCon must be affordable for non-corporate speakers, IMO, and it
doesn't make sense to start arguing it much before we have real
numbers to look at.
