I’ve made some proposals which I never bothered to bring to vote, or only after someone “forced” me to do it, because of any tags you like. I saw proposals where the thing was in a pre-voting state but already adopted by the community, as good enough, particularly when the key/value page is redirected to the proposal. These things are often years old and may have hundreds or thousands of uses. Common practice was creating a documentation page based on the proposal text (after checking that actual usage apparently agreed).

Maybe many of those 1100 pre-voting proposals do not have to “move forward” in a formal voting process sense?
