This is pretty big... I think it loses considerable effect if it's not 
part of the mandatory workflow...

Part of the idea was to centralize the process and make it uniform 
project-wide. If you look at the examples where Adrian is drawing most 
of the ideas from (i.e. Jabber's JEPs or, one I like - PEAR's PEPr) - 
there is a centralized overview of what can / will be implemented. I.E. 
if it's not there, it can safely be presumed nobody is working on it.

I understand that it's hard to introduce something like this on such a 
large community right now... but I think it would be hugely beneficial 
to have something slightly more formal in place...

It's not a process we're gonna agree on overnight, but I think it's one 
we should work towards.
