Eh?  Ok, good points, I'll concede.  Mostly I was just surprised
because I thought we already did it the way I proposed.

Hmm, checking /usr/share/doc/debian-policy/proposal.txt, I see:

     A fascinating sub proposal has been that we use the bug tracking
     system to track policy amendments in progress.  If this is used, we
     may initiate discussions in the policy group by filing wish-list bugs
     (note: this should be open to anyone at all)

That parenthetical comment is what I originally had in mind.  We *do*
seem to be using the BTS as suggested, so I assumed that this whole
paragraph applied.  OTOH, it does say "initiate discussions", not
"make formal proposals", so maybe everything is working as it should.

      or    xtifr@debian.org | above, but it is too long to fit into
