Well I think it would be difficult to do when all of us really use different software packages to complete the renders. It's an interesting idea, but I think it would seriously take months to create animated scenes for EVERY single 3D package. Maya, Max, XSI, Electric Image, Houdini, Blender..... and all the others that I can't name off hand right now.
UNLESS you go by storyboards and the people who are trying the challenges would animate. BUT then you are not really totally concentrating on the topic at hand - Lighting and Shading. Some of us might not be good at animation. And then it's not a challenge on lighting, it's a challenge on animation. And in a real production environment the lighting and shading teams might not have any input or control over the animation anyway.
But that is my two cents. I think some of us would like it, it would be an interesting twist. But some of us would not, and that I think would not be very fair.
