It seems like everyone's attempting to base this decision on what would be most dramatic as opposed to what would be most logical.
Since that seems to be the prevailing watermark, it would have to be a character important enough for readers to give a shit, and Martha's just not that character. She's a minor character at best. Unless they beef her up by having her actions lead to the death of someone harry actually cares about. And unless that's handled in any other way than "completely masterful", it will be like telegraphing a punch.
