Oft times asking for feedback without having a proposal in hand leads to
rampant speculation and overreaction.  (See this thread)  Having
something of a proposal already written helps those who are giving
feedback have a clear idea of the intention and at least some of the
mechanics of how such a proposal would work, rather than letting every
maintainer try to imagine it and come to their own conclusions, which
may be wildly off base.
