Hi Dave,

It's more of an experiment.  If it is a success someone gets all the 
glory by turning it into an I-D.  If the experiment fails the people 
who have put in the effort will have wasted their time.

I would look at this in terms of the tool used for a collaborative 
effort.  It is left to the community to decide whether further 
changes are needed for the output to reflect consensus.

There is a Trac plugin for email notifications.

I am not thinking of the integration part as it requires more than a 
lightweight effort.  Eliot pointed out that there is a socialization 
problem.  Who knows, may be the collaborative effort might help.
