Yep, that's the origin of the suggestion, although it's hardly a unique idea.
I merely made it more concrete.

Why wait further?  We've been waiting for something, anything from you since
you announced your maintainership 20 days ago.  You have your way of doing
things, and I have mine.  This is an *open* forum.  People should be
encouraged to post ideas, not discouraged.

That's why I posted a suggestion on the framework and not the details.  The
only fully-fleshed out items were lifted verbatim from the old Guide.  I
merely included them for context, to help illustrate my intent.

Quite contrarily, I think it's better to bring these things to light _before_
the conference so people will have time to mull them over.  Preparation makes
for better design sessions.
