FYI.  IDEAS as an IETF acronym has been taken since about 1989 or so.  It stood for Internet Design Engineering and Analysis Series which was a fairly short lived document series that preceded the Internet Drafts process.  This led to at least one internet routing company noting in its collateral that it implemented IDEA 9.

FWIW. I agree with John about the obnoxiousness of "ideas@ietf.org"; as a mailing list name.
