We had a similar situation with the QA Hackathon this year.  We had a sponsor with a standing policy of only sponsoring conferences with a published Code of Conduct.  So, we added a CoC to the conference and nothing else changed, meaning that people continued to behave as they've done in the past anyway.  That made it easy for the sponsor to get on board.  Everybody wins.

I think the policy Dave has posted basically sums up how we operate anyway, it just defines clearly what is acceptable and whom to contact if there's any kind of an issue.  So, it looks good to me and it's helpful that we'll have access to other venues if/when we need them.
