Why can't a web page listing the candidates be done manually?

But we don't know which candidates have accepted.  We have a page for the noms 
which include who nommed them plus the occasional blurb. Why not a separate 
page for just the candidates + the blurbs?  I suspect that's all most of us 
are interested in.  Someone pedantic, such as myself =), might ask to see the 
noms, but it's the candidates we want to really know about.
