Fair enough.  You still haven't answered my question about tracking 

Stated another way... history has shown with the feature process that 
people don't always do the right thing.  Not in a malicious way, but 
usually because they didn't understand what they were supposed to or 
simply took a guess and moved on.

For the feature process I use the very manual, rudimentary process of 
Category classifications and page watches.

What process are you proposing so that I know:
1) When a spin is officially being proposed as a feature?
2) All of the required previous required steps or approvals were 
completed correctly?
