All but the latter are perfect candidates for an SDR devroom. And the
latter would still be totally fine in an SDR devroom.

As mentioned in my response to Daniel, let's take this discussion offline.
Just as an FYI, I start rounding up speakers about the same time I apply
for the devroom (i.e. before it's actually accepted) just so people can
pencil it into their calendars and we can make sure we really have a
good lineup. A good data point you could gather is a list of names and
topics that could turn into actual talks. If you could get 5+ people
committed to presenting ASAP, that would give a better understanding of
what you want in a devroom.
