I think after I read everything at the linked pages, I disagree.
Because this is all pure volunteerism, I would that candidates can and
should withdraw, without being prejudiced by the withdrawal. We can
not, I believe, think to know the mind of these candidates, and shame on
us if we hold a withdrawal against the candidates in the future. This
would be a mistake. There are *MANY* reasons a withdrawal would occur
and a good many of them do not include "candidate not very serious".
You garner that from editing history, not one event, such as a withdrawal.
