I'd like to set the target before PGCon not after; so May 1 or May 15.
Otherwise +1.

As you say, we should reject outright (at the start of the final CF)
anything that's clearly too big.  But in the final 8.4 CF it didn't
really become clear until later on that some things were not ready or
were too big to deal with.  We need to be more willing to swing the axe
later in the fest, rather than allowing it to drag on "just a bit more"
in the hopes of getting big feature X in.
