You're certainly welcome to use this mailing list to ake a proposal,  
although note that before it can be adopted into a W3c specification we  
would ask you to commit  to hte terms of the W3C Patent Policy:  
https://www.w3.org/Consortium/Patent-Policy/

Alternatives are to provide an issue on the relevant repo - in this case  
https://github.com/w3c/workers - for stuff that is *close*, or in WICG -  
the Web Incubator Community Group - for things that are really ideas that  
need some incubation before they are likely to be accepted:  
https://discourse.wicg.io

cheers
