Seriouslly, you should report this to the W3C management. Because if 
people do not raise the issue it will keep on going.
And I agree that it is annoying.
We also miss every year the 01 Nov / 11 Nov  for TPAC. And 01 May and 08 
may and sometime the ability to vote for our french president election 
... du to TPAC/AC meetings ...
