I am not going to join the list but I have a couple of suggestions:

If you are going judge speakers, do so openly; perhaps even tell poor 
speakers not to bother again. Proposals with multiple authors should 
then have blanks for 'intended speaker' and 'alternate speaker' so the 
right person can be judged.

Editors of professional journals read reviews for acceptibility before 
sending them on to authors. Consider the same here.
