There are a number of possible audiences for Linux conferences, and

There are different linux audiences, and they are large enough and different enough to warrant keeping any non linux developer conf separate from lca.

Can we have a clarification here? The term "linux developer conf" - do you refer to developers of Linux, or to developers who use Linux?

There is a substantial difference. People like David Campbell, who developed the parallel port drivers, which were used for the Iomega Zip Drives, are different to people who develop web sites using Perl/PHP/Java and PostgreSQL/MySQL, etc, running on Linux.
