Strictly speaking, Wikimania is organized by a local organizing team/entity
(which, in recent years, has always been a chapter) rather than by the WMF,
so the Foundation's event policies wouldn't necessarily apply unless they
were put into place by the local entity as well.

As far as I'm aware, the Foundation hasn't (yet?) asked Wikimedia DC to put
this particular policy into effect for Wikimania 2012.
