I'm not saying it must be completely non-chronological, but doing it in a year-by-year format introduces all the same weaknesses as the real-life HoF voting process. Basically it would just be a reenactment/fantasy exercise... which could be interesting in it's own right, but IMO kind of trivializes the project.
If the idea here is to have a "cornerstone" project, one which defines the forum consensus as to who is in/out of the pantheon, we shouldn't put ourselves in a position to vote for weaker candidates based on the timing of their eligibility.
