where to post a kernel configuration suggestion?

I apologize for the cross-post -- I sent this to debian-user
yesterday, but I think debian-devel is probably more appropriate.

I'd like to suggest somewhere that the standard Debian kernel images
be compiled with CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ, especially since this option can
be turned on and off via sysctl and is therefore pretty harmless to
include (as far as I know).  If this were an issue about an ordinary
package, I'd just file it as a wishlist bug report, but since there
are so many kernel images and this suggestion really applies to all of
them, I'm not sure what to do.  Is there a mailing list I should send
to (other than this one) or a package I should post a bug report to?
I'm afraid that if I post to my current kernel image the report will
be lost.

If this has been discussed and there's a good reason to have it off, I
couldn't find anything in the archives.  Could someone fill me in?

Thanks for any help you can provide.  If this question has an obvious
answer that I could have found, a pointer would be helpful.  (I'm a
Debian newbie but a definite Linux oldbie (since 1992 when everyone
had to compile their own kernels :-])
