We've done talk slots for sponsors before. On the conditions you
mentioned (i.e. they need to be about a FLOSS contribution, relevant to
the attendees and not advertising) that was deemed o.k. in the past.

Bronze is really low, we did this for Gold or Platinum in the past.
You'd have ~25 or so potential talks otherwise, that's ... a lot.
Yes, not everybody will ask for it but you asked on -team and that is a
public mailing-list, so you can assume people will find out.
