Idealistically, yes, in practise this may not be the best option. The
Maemo community isn't as large as Debian's and it's contributors not as
wide-spread; maybe one day.

For the summit to be its most successful it needs to be held where most
of its target audience is physically based or can get to easily. If the
majority of community members and contributors are in Europe then it
makes no sense to hold the summit in Australia for instance. Too much
cost for interested people to attend and too expensive for Nokia to ship
people there on mass. Of course key contributing members should be
sponsored regardless of where they are based.
