Since painting a solid or nearly solid rectangle on the bottom
is quite an easy operation, a splash candidate would not necessarily 
need to be rejected on this basis.  I feel that this is worth mentioning
because several of the most popular candidates have this problem.

In any case, I feel that the committee is well chosen, and I don't
really have any worries that they will pick something that is unusable.
