The automatic return to draft status is eminently doable with a tweak to 
the existing proposal page status template. The notification would 
require something more advanced, maybe an extension but more likely a bot.

If I remember correctly, until about six months ago, Yurikbot was 
automatically updating data items to note each tag's status [1] based on 
the proposal discussion statement [2]. Without that in place, a proposal 
that automatically reverts to draft status based on the date in the 
template would require manually editing the infobox of any corresponding 
tag description page to note the new status. Perhaps the bot could be 
revised to keep these things in sync once again.
