No, it is very good if a proposal is specific and to the point. I
see that you have left the financial details out of the proposal -
I'm sure you know you will have to provide them before you submit
One thing that you haven't addressed is how you are going to release
things. I.e. what will be the terms under which the project results
will be made available. Will it be free software, will there be
a fee for a license, ...?
Some people have commented that they would like to see some more
"selling" in a proposal, i.e. who you are and why you are perfect
for the job (you answer this somewhat), and why the project is good
for Python (e.g. who would be using it). The nature of this
information/marketing depends on the proposal itself, of course, so
we don't have any explicit requirements.

The more specific, the better. We would like to know what we will get,
when we will get it, and what resources you need by what time.
