Yes. We could improve our engagement during design proposals. Oftentimes, there
is an announcement style mail and then the commit.

We should improve the way we target features for a release. We must adopt a
merge-window style of development (e.g linux-kernel). Jeff had some thoughts around
this. Time shouldn't be an excuse for hurrying up features into a release.
More importantly, maintainers must be empowered to say _no_, when design/code
submissions don't adhere to set expectations. Thoughts?
