Yes.  I don't see any conflict with a commercially oriented conference
playing host to community events.  Many community members also represent
commercial entities and it may be easier to justify a trip to JabberConf if
it serves double duty for JSF activities as well as their commercial
interests.  I see it happen a lot in Java projects that host their community
face to face business at Sun's JavaOne conference.  Sun accommodates them by
providing rooms during the conference to hold Birds of a Feather (BoF)
meetings.
