There isn't a true process here. The mailing list is for discussion purpose 
only, if I correctly understood.

I don't know if a CSS Issue has been filled with your proposal. If yes, you 
should have a look at this issue to know what's the current status of your 
proposal. If not, you may want to ask an implementor to fill an issue or to 
say you what is the avancement on this problem, if any.
