Small precision, since I realize after posting this might be taken the 
wrong way:

Don't get me wrong, HPE is of course free to invite whoever they want to 
their party :) But since you asked for opinions, my personal wish if it 
continues would be that it is renamed "the HPE VIP party" rather than 
partially tie it to specific rights or tags we happen to use upstream.
