Why keep it hypothetical?
I hope the Nobels are kept to scholarly achievement, since otherwise there'd have to be some very hard lines to draw about scholars who are unfaithful to their wives, engage in financial fraud, are involved in sexual perversion, do drugs, and so forth. I hope also that their political views are kept out of it. The Peace Prize is an embarassment because of its use as a political tool. There'sa good book on that called, I think, Peace They Say.
