What happened was the opposite: two developpers manhandled a third one.
The third one get expelled from Debconf. The two did not get real sanction
beyond being sermoned. But of course the public memory of the event is different.

This is the problem with your proposal: your proposal is more about defining a
set of rules that events organizers have to follow than rules that participants
have to follow. But how the organizers will be held accountable ? What information
will be used to make the decisions ?
