We had 300 (mixed Kubuntu, Ubuntu and Edubuntu) last time and I brought
back home like 50 of these, so yes 500 is a reasonable amount as we plan
to have a lot more people at those two release parties.

The problem I see with those two changes (especially the session sound)
is that you'll need to change the configuration which comes with two
packages (language-selector and ubuntu-sounds) and that may trigger some
weird bug/conflicts if and update of one of those packages is later
uploaded (which is likely as it's a LTS).

I would recommend to do as little change as possible, we want it to be
stable and rock solid + we want the users to be able to get professional
support from companies like Canonical, which is not possible if the main
packages are changed.

Have a CD with a different package set is fine as long as all of them
comes from the official repositories and for a LTS I would suggest to
use only packages from main to avoid possible support issues.
