I also like the idea of a RFC / Voting list but can see that it would raise
some problems as well.

You'd have to post to 2 separate lists to say "RFC on this proposal", then
discuss it on the tagging list as well as the talk page, & probably also on
the RFC list as well, because somebody will invariably make a comment on
there :-(

& then somebody will get cross, & vote No because you didn't respond to
their comment, which has been buried in a mass of others :-(

Starts getting complicated very quickly.
