This is the glory of open source projects -- if you have a great idea, you can simply do it:

- Start a document that describes Python's Core design principles
- Put it up somewhere (gitHub would be good) where others can contribute to it
- If it becomes a wonderful thing, then propose that it be published somewhere "official" -- as a meta-PEP or whatever.

(you can do something similar with a package that you may think should be in the stdlib, or a proposal that you might think should be a PEP, or...)

In short, you don't need approval for an idea ahead of time -- if you demonstrate its worth, then it may be included later. If not, then maybe it wasn't a great idea, or it is a great idea that can live on outside the official project.

I think this belongs in a personal blog, not on python-ideas and definitely not in a PEP.

I don't agree, but I will accept that judgement, as if Guido still had BDFL status.
