Open Source Days in Copenhagen made me sign a waiver on which I could
also select a license for my talk. Requiring such a waiver is a
low-tech way to ensure there's actual consensus.
Another option would be a required field in penta where you _have_ to
select if you want to be taped/audio recorded/whatever else.
Formalizing either, or a different, process for appearance and license
would make it easy to avoid any "pushing of boundaries" and do so in a
non-discriminatory manner. Doing this in penta would allow attendees
to attend non-taped talks and watch taped talks later.

Personally, I don't see a reason to lose the files; simply stating
that any request such request will be honored would be enough, imo.

That may be hard in practice, especially considering that there's a
second camera facing the audience to take shots of people asking
questions and, sometimes, full view of attendees and their reactions.
If we start down this road, color-coded name tags to designate people
who do not wish to be photographed are another logical step.
