Hmm, interesting point.

To be a candidate to simply create the ability to speak about another
is not fair to the election and review process.

Having a time controlled "open mike" for the general membership to
express a statement is not a bad idea.

I remember, that there used to be  (could still be) a way for people
to post written statements about a candidate.

If we really want to allow public endorsements (and I see no reason not to allow them), perhaps there should be an open discussion period such as the one during ARIN meetings for proposals that endorsers and detractors can use to discuss the merits of a particular candidate?
