A deadline refers to a practice in earlier prison camps which were usually farms and therefore had no real fences and so the deadline was literally a perimeter line that if you crossed you would be shot and most likely killed.
Can you imagine if they were to enact old school deadlines in place of the modern equivalent? I bet everyone would turn their work in on time with that kind of pressure. Unless of course they were suicidal and too lazy to do it themselves.
