so the attendees can self-assert that they've paid? <br>
Last I checked, even IIW requires proof.<br>

To react on most of these issues we have a nice line up off speakers
Is the "centralization" misconception not one of the issues your
speakers are currently prepared to react upon?
If not, you might be able to work something similar into the event
itself - at the door, when you're issuing passes (for future entry),
explain that (to fit the OpenID theme) they'll need to additionally
write in on their pass the name of someone who can vouch for their
having purchased a membership, so they can gain access to the speakers.
And, yes, for "centralization" they do have this fellow who's taking
admissions, who can vouch for the fact that they did pay for theirs;
but he'll be at the door all day, and can't go with them to vouch for
their right to access any speaker. However, because OpenID is
DEcentralized, and lets the *user* decide who they want their OP to be,
they'll write you write in ANY name on your pass; you can put in one of
your friends who will be accompanying you the entire time, you can even
put your OWN name. And, of course, you can always write in a
different/new name later.
