There's no negative to sleeving the 29'er tube - down to any size - other than weight. The tube will maybe perform differently at bottom out (sleeved area double thick) but otherwise it's all constrained by the tire.  Advantage of the 27 or 26 is a lighter tube to carry but stretching it larger is still stretching it even if by a lesser factor.  Carrying just a 27" or 26" is going to get you out but I think the sleeved 29" is going to have the best survivability?!
