To help keep track of proposals like this one, I've set up a
"Proposals" component in the W3C public bugzilla, under the "HTML
WG" "product".

To use that bugzilla, you first need to go to the following
address and create a new account for yourself.

  http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/createaccount.cgi

Once you've done that and replied to the confirmation message it
generates, you can then go to this page to create a new issue:

  http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/createaccount.cgi

I would much appreciate it if you could yourself enter your
proposal as an issue there, and then report back to the list with
the bugzilla bug number it gets assigned.

But if find it's more of a hassle to enter it there than you're
willing to deal with, let me know and I will enter it myself.

We've not so far as a group been using the bugzilla at all, but I
would like to give it a try as a way to track initial proposals
like this one that are floated to the group -- so as to make sure
that they don't slip through the tracks and we have a unique URI
to use for referring to them.

I'm not suggesting that you do this instead of pursuing what
you've been doing -- which is, posting the proposal here to
raise awareness of it, to encourage discussion, and to see how
much interest it gets. That's exactly the right thing to be doing.
The use of bugzilla is just a way to keep a record of it in one
place so we can refer back to it when we need to.
