Alternatively, the talks team could take a quick look at 1/2 (they
accepted a couple of talks this year at around that time, which I found
great, so were looking already) and maybe 3/4 into the CfP and give some
feedback to submissions with bad descriptions, warning them that they
will be rejected if the description is not improved by the end of the
CfP. Hrm, in re-reading AJ's proposal, that's probably what he meant
with "Try to tell submitters early"...

Letting people resubmit with a better description for 1-2 weeks after
the CfP has ended is still a good idea and could be done in addition IMO.
