 I believe that in our climate we don’t get much delayed germination.  The seedlings that are there now will get to grow for two years. Of course, I will have to eliminate the poorer ones next year to make more room for the better ones.  Any little seedlings showing up after this spring will be treated as weeds.  When the bed is dug in the summer of 2006, it will be solarized for about a month, and in our hot September sun, any remaining seeds should be killed.
