In general one can avoid a lot of unnecessary work while doing only 
those things where is a good reason to do them.
In contrast doing all things where is no good reason against leaves one 
with a lot more todos ;-)
Really this argument is about not becoming too bureaucratic.

But my other argument is that I feel it is socially alienating if we are 
threatening people with deadlines without giving them a reason for it. 
My impression was that Wolf Halton has felt the same. He has asked for a 
reason, but not gotten an answer yet.

So in the end I think those who are voting for a deadline need to 
provide a good reasons to do so.

Kind regards,
