A Tourney without Vacations?

Would it be possible to have a tournament with no vacation time allowed?  I like the concept of vacation time, but some of these tournaments take forever when the first round is 90% complete but everyone is being held up by one or two players on vacation. 

I'm not saying we should get rid of vacation time during tournaments, but it would be nice for someone to host a tournament without vacations once in awhile.  Just a thought.

    The TD should have the option of adjuticating (spelling?) the tournament in these cases so as to speed things along. I was watching the parings in this tournament or maybe another, but the thing was over and should have been on to the next round except we had to wait out results. Of course there are rating points at stake.

    Or maybe a milder approach would be to elimate players from tournaments who are mathmatically unable to advance, but still take 3 weeks of vacation in games they are many points down in.
