More or less.

The syntax is just like your proposal, but instead of using "planned", it uses 

So either
highway=proposed + proposed=primary/secondary/...
railway=proposed + proposed=rail/tram/...

Given that Mapnik is already rendering the highway=proposed syntax, it makes 
sense to just adjust your proposal to use "proposed" instead of "planned". And 
you don't really need to go through RFC or voting or whatever, because it's 
basically documenting established use (osmdoc.com currently gives 200 usages 
of highway=proposed -- which is actually quite a lot for something which is 
almost unmappable...).
