The whole point of the GR discussion period is to have exactly these sorts
of discussions. I would prefer to use our existing processes rather than
using new processes to "pre-discuss" things for which there's already a
standard discussion process.
The GR should definitely be mentioned on -project to ensure that people
know that the discussion is happening.
