It depends on how the wiki is set up. For instance, the header of the wiki could state, as
the subject line here does, "Preference/Proposed…." and then go on in one sentence to explain,
"the names proposed derive from the overall committer list (or whatever) and are those valued
by the individual proposer. The final PMC list itself will likely change as the project evolves
and will be composed of those names suggested here." It could then clarify who is able to
propose names and stipulate a deadline.

Further, it could clarify that in future, a different process operate, and that this process
now is essentially ad hoc to resolve a late-summer slowdown stalemate. 

This page could further clarify what other pages do: the point of the PMC. 

In this way, a wiki can provide more than a mail list post.
