I'm quite certain I have a good idea of the magnitude of what you'd charge
for professional services for such work, and I would expect it to be 2-3 
orders of magnitude larger than what a Worldcon Concom could afford to pay. :-)

I would also be very surprised -- having been on NANOG for over a decade now
and never having heard your name -- to find out that you were the Exclusive
Network Services Provider for NANOG...

And I expect they'd be surprised too.  Hey!  Let's ask them!  :-)
