I agree with you. What I'm trying to do is remind people that this proposal
exists, so that people may start using it. The first step to do this is to
let people know about it. The second one is to drag it out of that "Draft"
status, so that those who find it by searching the wiki don't come to the
conclusion that they shouldn't use it.
