I don't agree with this. I don't really think we should be in the position of
policing swag bag materials, nor should we be projecting that we're
worried that sponsors are going to do stupid things. (Obviously, best
judgement for inappropriate materials, but if a sponsor wants to throw in
a 40 page document on why they are awesome, which would reflect poorly
on them, I'd say perhaps talk to them and make them realize it's probably
not a good idea, but I don't think we should prevent it. (I can't think of any
recent examples of items that would even come close to being problematic.)

Also, since sponsor bag is for bronze+, as is job wall, I think we are
overworrying here.
