I do not really see a benefit in such a presentation and would not consider to attend such a session. It misses everything what makes a symposium worth attending. And as outlined by Shadi there is the danger of disturbance of the symposium. 

BUT IF SOMEONE IS INTERESTED IN USING IT, fine.

I also think it is a good idea.
