Just to be clear, i have nothing against Jesus and Guido and would probably 
rate them high for sponsorship due to their activities in Debian. If the case 
is that they missed the deadline and are now asking for an exception because 
they really want to attend DC11, have plans for DebCamp etc then i would think 
like you.

My opinion is based on the fact they didn't register (sorry if I misunderstood 
it). If they registered and asked for sponsorship in time I suggest talksteam 
to schedule the talk in penta and ask the sponsorship team to consider this 
talk as a plus when rating them.
