That's totally ok. Check out http://extensiblewebmanifesto.org for inspiration. Like I said, it doesn't need to be anything fancy. Just keep it simple.

That would be awesome (specially if done in NodeJS, as most of us here are JS coders… including me). We have an experiments repo over on github for exactly these kinds of experiments/tests:

There are plenty of people here who can review code, comment, etc.  

Node seems really well suited to this.
