Personally, I think DEP should go to d-d-a *once accepted* (dunno about
obsoleted, maybe as well), but initial drafts should go to either
debian-devel (DEP touches development, I assume this will be the vast
majority of DEPs, also the case for most examples from DEP0), or
debian-project (DEP does not touch development, the `finding
sponsorship' example from DEP0 and DEP0 itself).
Otherwise, I think this is a good idea. Did you consider moving dep.d.n
over to wiki.debian.org once that is run by ikiwiki and DEPs are
