Because I would mark a proposal page as such in some place. Otherwise a
stable 10 year-old feature page cannot be easily distinguished from a
proposal created yesterday. I see something like moving the page to a
different namespace or removing a "proposal" status. Not changing the
content or rewriting the page.

Fully agree.

Yes, and the combined pages can be linked just like that.

I am promoting writing a single "feature proposal" page, which, after the
initial discussion, is made just a "feature" page. So nothing is written
one after another.
