Comment (by dd32):

 Unfortunately I can see a Widget area getting used/abused for a range of
 things, the homepage is specifically locked down to reduce the
 customisation and to bring it closer to the WordPress branding. Adding
 customisation there doesn't feel like the right step forward.

 Another thing that has come up in the past when this has been proposed
 (I'm unsure if a Trac ticket exists) is that not all locales are country
 specific, or apply to multiple countries.


 Perhaps a better option may be to investigate the ability of adding a
 "local events" section conditionally to rosetta homepages that are mostly
 country-specific? That could include things like Meetups in addition to
 WordCamps (ie. anything that appears in the dashboard).

 All the above being said, I'd love a way to pull in the WordCamp banners
 directly from https://central.wordcamp.org/schedule/ without any
 customisation being offered (Just having it show up ~3 months beforehand
 for example). But I can also see that being a challenge in some countries
 such as Australia where this year there's 3 WordCamps within a 90 day
