I think death is a bit like pregnancy; people are typically not "a
little bit dead" or a "little bit pregnant". You either are or are

Considering that the initiative to have submission deadlines in this
field be real deadlines has evidently failed I'd like to propose that
these lines should now instead be called "common cold lines" or
"influenza lines", depending on how close to the point where things
need to go to the presses we are. Those terms are easier to relate to
for most of us and convey the relative seriousness of the situation.

"Deadline extended" also gets a bit monotonous; with illnesses there
is a lot more space for variation which will lead to more attention
for your event, I think.

Please consider.
