You don't have that choice; the "publicly-readable electronic mailing list
deisgnated byt eh Project Leader's Delegate(s)" is this one, not d-d-a,
as per http://www.debian.org/vote/howto_follow. The requirements for
the discussion period are quite explicit, and only the end date can be
varied, and that only by the project leader or the proposal's proposer
or sponsors.

Giving people time to discuss it certainly is; making up dates other
than those required by the constition isn't. The whole point of a
constitution is so we don't make things up as we go along.
