I don't see how becoming a sponsor can help in these cases.  It's  
come up a couple times but I think there's a misunderstanding of  
sponsor benefits here.  The rights of sponsors don't really include  
using the OSGeo brand as part of their own events.  It merely lets  
them identify themselves as sponsors.  Are you thinking of specific  
wording on that page that suggests more?  I'm thinking of the "Right  
to use OSGeo Sponsor logo and promote named sponsorship level"
