Dragon con's reasoning has been, at best, well, you know, stupid.

That writers like Littlewood and Scalzi wished to / finally were 'allowed' to withdraw their works makes perfect sense, and is wise on their parts. They know what is up with all this and why should they be forced to deal / cope / tolerate it?

It doesn't make sense that they wouldn't notify nominees in advance of the ballot announcement and give them a chance to withdraw for whatever reason they wish. Scalzi took last year off because he was, to use the Cheetoh Benito's catch phrase, 'tired of winning' and very busy. It only makes sense to extend such a courtesy.

Myself, the list is such a long mishmash of nominees that I'd be very curious to know how many people who are voting have read every single book on it. I read every single Hugo nominee, though I abandoned one after reading several chapters.

That's not how I select new authors to read, but I don't lay claim to logical processes.
