The current  date for WPX CW (last full weekend of May) is fine with me. 
Memorial Day is a minor holiday and it only applies to the U.S. anyway. And, 
the end-of-May date helps spread out the major contest weekends a little, 
allowing a break after the winter contest madness and before the IARU contest. 

But, moving the contest to a better DX propagation date would be nice. How 
about April or mid-October? If I were the WPX sponsor I would not be 
intimidated by any of the podunk operating activities on every weekend that 
hardly anybody operates in. The WPX is a worldwide activity that should take 
precedence over contests of a parochial nature.
