That would be the only of the proposed solutions you actially need a bit of
main organizer staff support for.
It might also have an effect on the price of the booklets printing as
having pre punched paper inside is an extra feature.

Spelling it that way sounds a bit like it happened "actively", but I guess
Fosdem staff is busy with many other things that have higher priorities (to
I say this without judging - it sounds like a good idea, while other things
also sound important, and it's known that organizers are *very* busy with
all they have to do already.

Basically, most of your suggestions could just be done by anyone who feels
the thing is important(e.g. you and the other guy you mention).
Just buy tags in advance(eventually find a sponsor as 4000 tags will sum up
to quite a bit),
appear to FOSDEM and place yourself on the infodesk as volunteer to do
exactly this task - handing out these tags and pens to write names on them.
I hope/assume you will happily get some place on the info desk to do it,
otherwise place yourself in the entrance of each building somehow.
Should be doable.
