I tend to think "in public" is the best place to hammer on trust issues;
otherwise how to tell the difference between a convincing argument,
or the appropriate people getting bored, threatened or bought off?
Finding out which of those is the case seems pretty crucial to resolving
trust issues, afaics.

I haven't seen any such proposals (beyond "add LSB compliance" and
"new X"); I wouldn't really expect to either -- far easier and better
to just make the improvements, license them freely, and put them out
for use and comment simultaneously. Which is to say, create a fork.

But maybe I've just missed them.
