I want to give this idea a huge +1, it's a really good idea.  I'm
strongly in favor of removing the incentive to share direct links to
talks (even though I'm guilty of tweeting "vote for my talk!" more
than once).  Having individualized links like this would be very
helpful and sounds to me like it would be an elegant solution to at
least part of the problem we are trying to solve.
