I've been advocating people "too early" (i.e, I've advocated people so
that they could start NM, while in the meantime, I wouldn't have
advocated them for DM). The reason is that the "unassigned applicants"
list is huge, so, when considering whether you should advocate someone
or not, you basically have to wonder whether the person will behave well
when he gets an AM in 6 months.
It all depends on the meaning of the advocacy. Does it mean "I believe
that X is ready to be a DD now" (which would be stupid, since X will
wait at least a year before becoming a DD) or "I believe that X is ready
to start the NM process".
