the announcement stated:
"Each entry should be 3 lines, with 5 syllables on the first, 7 on the
second, and 5 on the third. You can enter as many different submissions
as you want. Submissions are judged based on their relation to Unicode
and/or SW Globalization, and most importantly, cleverness and whimsy."
This does not mention any traditional rules about Haiku composition
beyond the division in lines of a stated number of syllables. My
expectation would be that the judges should be careful before
disqualifying anything that fits these criteria...and I would be
disappointed, if, after this wording in their announcement, they would
restrict entries to a narrow traditional interpretation of Haiku, or
indeed made anything like that a factor in judging the entries.
