Maybe for some people, not for me.  Lets repeat again: many of us can
only get to one European conference per year, and even that one is hard
enough to get to.

All of us in North America are pretty much in the same boat. A trip to
Europe starts at about $500 for the East Coast and about $750 for us
poor West Coast people. By combining the events (possibly also mixing
in an X or an XFCE track) would instantly make it much more appealing
to come to, from a purely economic POV.
