In my experience you should never wait for being "allowed" to send a new
proposal, but just do it when you think something needs to change - in
particular after so many people have already stated similar needs. The
reason being that others won't really understand what you are proposing
until you actually make a full technical proposal. Holding yourself back is
just self-censorship and not constructive. At minimum you will get good
reasons why your proposal is not necessary - at best you've started a new
work item. Don't wait until you have worked out the "best" solution either
- it will most certainly need more input from the group no matter how
"mature" you think your first submission is.

Just my 2c worth.
Silvia.
