I agree with Stef on all of this.  I think we should have the ability 
for people to leave comments on a proposal, which then also necessitates 
having all of the talks visible at some point.  Yes, there will likely 
be some spam management to be handled, but I think it's a small price to 

We may even find that comments are helpful in shaping the talks and 
improving them prior to the summit.
