One of the things the SoC summit brought out was that ideas should be 
detailed enough to be clear about "requirements" but not so detailed as 
to lay out "design". If you can provide requirements, and ask the 
students to provide design and work plan in their proposals, you will be 
able to separate the wheat from the chafe. If you are too detailed in 
your descriptions you won't be able to tell regurgitators from people 
who have seriously studies the problem and needs.
