Backdated material as protest-vote

Thought-experiment:

The Worldcon can rule, if it pleases, that pre-posted material be considered; and that the backdated work with the most votes get a nomination-slot. (Preferably only one would get this form of "nomination", so that the ballots aren't stuffed every year with Golden Age zombies.)

In this form, the chosen zombie would become a pointed form of "no award", delivered to the sort of book that those voters wish had been on the slate. Suppose for the 2001 slate I had written in, say, Dune. Or Ender's Game for 2013.
