At the moment, we don't have enough tracks to fill all of the space, so 
there will be a lot of room remaining for "standalone" talks. However, 
if you can affiliate with a track, you'll benefit from additional 
marketing efforts, which is good for everyone. Hopefully in the coming 
days, we'll have some clear track definition statements, and it might be 
more obvious whether one of the tracks is the right home for your talk. 
But, if not, yes, we'll have lots of room for these additional talks.

The additional benefit of these standalone talks is that they give a way 
for unrepresented projects to have a voice in the event, and that's 
awesome, too.
