My biggest concern is that dragging this on into the new year will result in more bikeshedding, more uncertainty, and less confidence in the developer community decision making ability.
That's a fair point. But there's also an opposite concern that discussions may be deterred or cut short by a too tight deadline. Even simple and uncontentious PEPs take time to write, discuss and finalize.
Maybe it would be better to focus on a first date for submitting proposals and then wait to set the rest of the deadlines until after we have a bit more of the discussion behind us. That will give us a sense for how much consensus there is and how much more discussion might be needed.
This suggestion seems to balance well the different perspectives.
Proposals due by Sept 9, 2018 AOE.
I still think it's too short. Imagine someone leaving in August. Besides catching up with work, the beginning of a new school year (if they have kids) and other things, they have only 9 days to contribute usefully.
This is not something we can mobilize for to try and compress the time span as much possible.
