Compost plants with Septoria leaf spot?

My tomatoes so far have escaped the dreaded late blight (knock wood), but several have Septoria leaf spot. The maters are maturing but some of the leaves are wilting and drying up, starting at the bottoms of the plants.

Once the plants have finished fruiting, I'll pull them. Should I compost the vines or, on account of the leaf spot, bag them and throw them away (or burn them)?

My compost piles sometimes heat up, but don't always reach super-high temps.
