It is quite strange, in my POV, that it wasn't discussed with main
teams (kernel, X, KDE, GNOME, d-i, ...) inside of Debian.

We all know that even Debconf has a lot of people most of those
projects hadn't people attending to the KeyNote and then this is not
the proper place to _propose_ a plan. This is suppose to have been
sent to debian-devel-announce, discussed and then after all announced.

AFAIK the main point of communication for Debian Developers are
debian-devel-announce and debian-announce. I was surprise that a
KeyNote is not a formal way of making proposals and GET resolutions
