Eduard, I think that your FAQ is very very good! I would add one thing
at the last part: (Which is the right module to propose feature X?)
One of the best ways to figure it out (In my experience), is to search
in the mailing list for similar topics. Also, in that way, it prevents
people from posting repeated proposals that are still active or has
been rejected for technical or structural reasons (or any other
reason). In general, I think it would be good to comment more about
the mailing lists, how to search in them and how to post in them
(briefly). Like for example, prepend to the title [css-module]. If you
think this information would be repetitive to the one in the mailing
list page, then a link would be enough.
