Build a startup in 48 hours?

There seem to be many variations on this theme; startupweekend, Garage48, Buildit, Game Jam, Service Jam….

But, almost all of these events seem to ask people to sign up, and select one of their grand sounding titles (Developer, Designer, Visionary etc).
I think it would be better if they used titles that described what you would be doing during the weekend, so this could be something like; Code Monkey, Pixel Pusher, Powerpoint Princess, etc.

This way, only those people who *really* want to come and learn something would turn up, and would have something of the correct attitude (not too serious, lets work together, etc)

On another note, many of these weekends used to emphasise the possibility of founding the next world changing startup there, now at least some of them are mentioning that you should be expecting more of a learning experience.
