I don't think a well thought-out proposal is wasted time, however he 
might be disappointed when he finds out that his accepted proposal does 
not mean it will be rendered or even used by other people.

There is definately a discrepancy between how people see OSM e.g. on the 
forum and on the mailing lists.
