Considering that's a fairly major entry barrier for most people...

Hypothetically speaking, say a really good specification of an original 
idea for a new property has been drafted and sent to this list.  The 
spec clearly describes in great detail about its use cases, how it 
affects rendering, how it interacts with other properties, the box model 
and/or other relevant sections of the CSS, plus describes how it can be 
incrementally rendered, any parsing issues, cascading and inheritence 
issues, etc.  The author also satisfactorily responds to all questions 
and comments raised.

What are the chances of such a proposal at least being discussed for 5 
minutes (before being rejected) at the next CSSWG meeting?
