Why do you care how people use the vacation time they earned? It should be up to managers to decide whether it's reasonable for someone to use a major chunk of it at a time. If someone chooses to basically retire early by using a major chuck of PTO before their retirement, so what? Chances are the organization will be able to have someone (possibly younger and more productive) assume the retiree's duties.
