I think the problem with presentation
material is that most people never have them ready in time for the sticks
to be burned (mid-February). Those that do have something ready will likely
make further revisions before the conference, so you end up with out of
Someone may have mentioned this, but
the big value of having the latest milestone on the stick is that all attendees
have it on hand for the tutorials. Having given several tutorials, I can
say attendees frequently don't have the latest milestone on hand, which
results in a slower startup time for the tutorial.

I would like to see the presentation materials remain on the stick. This
is especially true for the tutorials. The internet service will likely
be stellar again this year, but just incase it is down, attendees need
to get at the materials quickly.
I have also made use of the stick many times to browse the presentation
If the sticks a 4GB USB keys this year, there should be plenty of space.
