I'd say (and I took it that way when I proposed 44922), that anyone
can make a (formal) proposal.  *If* the proposer is not a maintainer,
it needs one second more than when the proposer *is* a maintainer.

Simple arithmetic... ;-)

How can we make *formal* proposals based on an *informal* document?
This does not quite compute, sorry.

I don't know what your intent was (and if you just "think the intent
was", it seems you don't know either ;-)

But I think the intent of a (formal or informal) proposal process
should be to gather as many good ideas as possible.

Sorry, but I do (and no-one complained about 44922... not even you
