I can see advantages and disadvantages of both approaches -  
incremental decisions vs a single time-limited big decision.  I think  
it all depends on the engagement of the community.  If there is clear  
consensus from the community on a particular proposal, I can imagine  
the committee incrementally accepting it.  If consensus is not clear,  
I think a decision is likely to be deferred until voting-time.
