Well, for one thing, decisions are not based on the results of an
applause meter (as Femke mentioned at the time). Secondly, the proper
time to bring up 2014 sites was in 2012 -- there may not be uniform
agreement on this, but for various reasons, it is a sensible approach
we are working toward.

As I say, this doesn't forbid later proposals, but puts a great deal
of stress on the decision-making process, which each year seems to
drag on whenever we don't come to a decision while we're still at LGM.
