Isn't it a bit daft to have the ties played now, given that:

- It's the 2013 cup

- It's out of season for most clubs, now that NCL and most non-Yorks / Lancs Tier 4 leagues are playing a summer season

The initial FA Cup draw usually happens at the start of July, so it's a not too dissimilar timescale really.
