I remember talking about this in the MUC, but seems I didn't here.

I'm fine with in lieu sponsorships, but I don't think they should get
a better sponsorship deal than the equivalent. So if it's a $5k
equivalent, that's a $5k sponsorship (I assume that by this point
USSHC is far and away our largest sponsor, based on the in lieu value
of hosting).
