Leslie,

A working premise has been that disclosing a target venue when the 
contact with sites there are about to happen or are happening will 
affect the negotiations.  Simply put, if they have good reason to think 
that we are committed to that city and there aren't many choices there, 
their negotiating leverage gets dramatically better than ours.

As for the concern you cite about earlier timing, when the choice of 
venue is still 'hypothetical', can you please provide some details about 
the nature of that concern and how it was concluded that those concerns 
should dominate the choice of timing?

Thanks.
