Not necessarily.  We may as well discuss standardization-related
proposals for finalists before we've selected winners, and our ability
to come up with good ways to standardize a finalist might affect its
selection as a winner.

I think we should avoid/minimize whatever delays there might be between
making and announcing any decision.  So I dislike this option.

It should be the panel's responsibility to make decisions in a timely
manner, regardless of whatever bikeshedding there might be on this
mailing list.
