I disagree.  It's not a slippery slope.
Yes, there will be a few, there are some already who do that.

The number of people who can get home faster by leaving the conference space
at 3 or 4pm for a 5pm-ish flight home is small.  Yes, that's when my
preferred flight home to Canada is from Seoul or Tokyo is, but I could have
taken a later flight with a US routing.  That's the only kind of location where
I think it would matter.  There are either no flights, or there are
additional flights later in the evening.

I think that this is even smaller still now that we are seldom in the US.
Maybe some Europeans and Asians can comment on feasbility of returning early evening
Thursday vs late Thursday, or having to stay to Friday anyway.
