It's one think that was an outcome of me talking to a few FESCo
members - so it's definitely not FESCo decision and I did not talk
to everyone. I should really start on the actual proposal (and I 
wanted to come with a real one, not just talking) but - the main 
idea was to free FESCo hands by not having to approve every single
feature and have a time to spent more on the system wide/escalated
ones. Also the announcement is a part of better visibility of 
proposed features as this seems does not work well (and yeah, there's
barrier as before the feature is approved by FESCo, it's just one
of a huge list of incompleted ones). 

Although this does not solve a problem that some really big changes
does not go through the process at all as it's not mandatory (or
we do not have a way how to actually enforce it).
