Sure, sponsorship is essential, but if people give up on submitting the
proposal that's not good for the conference either.
Since you delegate registration to a 3rd party you also risk to miss
various problems reports which for some reason the vendor may decide to
ignore or attend to those too slow (I hope they don't :). And you won't
even know there were some issues...
but of course I haven't volunteered my time to help with the conference,
so I have little say... :)
