Er, "The can is open, the worms are everywhere"? (-:

Since LCA2004 did a special case for educationaLinux and ocgconf, there 
is now the expectation for specials elsewhere as well. This is one 
reason that LCA2003 avoided so doing.

I think they/we may have quietly let one or two special cases register 
as students and attend just a miniconf, but that was the better part of 
a year ago and my recollection of it ain't at all clear.

I don't know how much LCA2004 has discussed this internally, but I'd 
recommend pro-rata'ing the miniconf days, that is, if your category 
pays $300 for four days of conf, miniconferences are basically $150 if 
taken separately.
